You are welcome to join the ICORE online meetings!

You are welcome to join the ICORE online meetings!

ICORE members have begun a series of meetings to develop the association’s defining connection between open research and open education, as well as methods of promotion for these fields. All interested organizations and experts are invited to join one of the next open online meetings on Wednesday, 23 October 2013. The first session will start at 8:00 am UTC and the second at 4:00 pm UTC, in order to allow global participation. The last meeting on July 30th helped establish ICORE’s interpretation of openness in regards to education and research through an exploration of existing terminology. The meeting in October will develop collaboration through the ICORE Wiki and the planning of future ICORE events.

ICORE thus intends to bring the agendas of open research and open education together, thereby disseminating alternatives to traditional publishing and educational techniques. “ICORE is being shaped by the diverse experiences of its international members,” says Christian M. Stracke, ICORE Co-founder and ISO Convener for learning quality from the University of Duisburg-Essen, “in turn for their support, ICORE will feature members’ own work in open research and education, as well as any other work members perceive to be valuable to the fields.”

ICORE will initially promote best practice examples in the fields of open research and education through a wiki page for collecting key terms and definitions, projects from other initiatives, resources, practices, and more. This database will be jointly administrated by ICORE members and will aim to sustain the exchange of practical approaches to ICORE themes. In doing so, ICORE plans to further its principle goal of fostering international cooperation amongst both its members and all organisations involved in open research and education.

All interested parties are encouraged to attend future meetings and to take part in the establishment of an innovative association connecting open research and open education. The next open ICORE Online Meeting will take place on Wednesday, 23 October 2013, starting at 8:00 am UTC and 4:00 pm UTC. To contact the meeting organizers regarding participation in the online meetings, as well as to find more information and the latest ICORE news, please visit the official ICORE website:
