Bring your talent to solve a challenge!

This practical and interactive #LearnHack session draws together staff and students – across academic levels and disciplines – to collaboratively explore ideas and solutions to how Open Education practice is embedded across UCL. The session provides an alternative information- and participation-based approach to advancing Open Education, and we encourage practitioners and participants interested in new forms of interactive learning to attend.

  • You don’t need to know anything about Open Education prior to the event, and anyone can come along!
  • You don’t have to find the answer to a problem – we’re interested in seeing how you approach a problem, what resources might be needed to investigate further, what suggestions or recommendations you can make based on what others are doing or what you’ve found out, etc.
  • What’s important is your engagement with the topic, regardless of how small you think your contribution is – even if that means crossing off the list an avenue of exploration!
  • Create! Posters, templates, guidance forms, tools, and infrastructure which will support UCL’s delivery of OE across the globe.
  • We want practitioners in the Arts and Sciences to get involved, so we can better connect the curriculum!


* Note: this event is different to the #LearnHack 5.5 Open Education [tech track] which will take place in February 2019. Contact us if you'd like more information about that.




Taking Part

If you’re involved in teaching, training, supporting students, or learning at UCL, and are interested in new and evolving methods of education practice in HE – and helping guide the support that you can access – this is the event for you. We will ensure you are well fed and watered throughout the event. At the end of Day 2 one team will earn prizes for best overall problem solving process and solution.

You must bring a laptop or tablet. Don't forget to also bring any chargers or adapters you may need during the event. Contact us if you don't have access to a laptop and we will try to find a suitable device which can be loaned to you.

This is a two-day event and you will be expected to participate on BOTH days.

FAQ

What exactly is going to happen at the event?
#LearnHack 5.0 is slightly different from previous #LearnHack events: most of the learning will take place on Day 1, with an afternoon of talks, while Day 2 is devoted entirely to finding solutions and creating Open Educational support materials.

What if I buy a ticket but later decide I can't make the event after all?
This is important:

  1. If you cancel your ticket at least 48hrs before the event via Eventbrite, we're cool because it allows us to release your ticket back into the pool.
  2. If you have to drop out with less than 48hrs to go, then you must email the organiser before the start of the event.
  3. If you decide that options 1 and 2 don't apply to you and you choose simply not to show up, we reserve the right to cancel without explanation any future #LearnHack events you try to register for.

We totally understand that plans can change at short notice, but that's not an excuse for bad manners!
