Workshop on Co-creation of emerging trends in Academia

Workshop on Co-creation of emerging trends in Academia will take place on November 7, 2012, at the Best Western Premier Hotel Slon, Ljubljana, Slovenia.

The main goal of this one day event is to clarify how emerging technologies can change and help co-create emerging publishing, curriculum and digital issues. Open data is all over – it’s documents, statistics, content, software and users on one side and it’s students, teachers, publishers on the other side. The producers and the produced. It’s still a buzz word, but can we do something about it? Can we integrate it in the Academic reality? Can we influence on how Academia will look like in the future or will we follow and let selected global universities and companies to influence the shape of things to come? US based startups are doing it, why can’t we do it to? OCW courses and free online videolectures open platforms and techniques developed in Europe can empower our ideas and give them a chance to become realities of education tomorrow. We are suggesting there will be a network effect in learning and the consecutive power law will shift in the upside of renowned universities. Alongside this, Emerging approaches in social media, multimedia, open access, open courseware and data publishing will driven the academic publishing industry to realise a gap in its current publishing practices and try ways to fill that gap.
