What is the burning issue you think young researchers and experienced scholars need to talk about? Share your themes in a discussion thread!
This forum is to be organised in collaboration with young researchers and well-known scholars participating and presenting at the conference. The dedicated forum intends to allow its participants to meet and discuss the most relevant themes emerging from the side of the young. The consultation with their peers and with a group of senior scholars presents an opportunity to the more novice to enhance the effectiveness and quality of their work. This interactive session is OPEN TO ALL who consider themselves young enough to benefit from the discussion OR experienced enough to enrich the debate by their own insights and opinions.

From the #EDENOslo Confrerence blog by Alastair Creelman: Day 2 of the conference ended in a euphoric high with the closing keynotes. However I would like to take a step or two back and reflect on a remark from a session I attended. There's been a lot of talk about tsunamis, revolution, disruption and other radical terms of major upheaval in education. But let's just remember that we've been here before several times. At the end of the 1990s the dotcom boom was in full flight and e-learning was on everyone's lips. It was going to completely change the education system and large scale online universities started springing up all over the world and established universities rushed to start offering online courses and degree programmes. Then came the crash and online learning got more integrated into the traditional system and we returned to business as usual, though with a few new elements and a few lessons learned. The system got a fright but then the innovations were absorbed and the threat of revolution was averted. Don't get me wrong, I believe that we are in a period of exciting change and see the promise of a new focus on learning with technology as a powerful tool. But I also think it's dangerous to underestimate the power of tradition and that we're challenging established business models that will fight back. Already the openness of the mainstream MOOC market is being diluted as they develop into franchising deals for digital course material with full copyright on everything. The truly open and innovative initiatives such as OER University, Peer 2 Peer University and the original connectivist MOOCs are virtually never mentioned though they all continue to operate within a limited but enthusiastic and creative community.
The Big Picture Learning design is a dynamic approach to learning, doing, and thinking that has been changing the lives of students, educators, and entire
