The Special Session "Open Educational Resources and Competences related with Practices and Laboratories" is Co-Located with 13th International Conference on Remote Engineering and Virtual Instrumentation (REV2016).
A fundamental strength of many engineering courses is engaging students to foster the connection between theories and their appropriate practical applications. The objective of this special session within the 13th International Conference on Remote Engineering and Virtual Instrumentation (REV 2016) is to provide a forum to discuss about experiences in learning and teaching Open Educational Resources (OERs) and Competences related with Practices / Laboratories. Following milestones of main conference, this special session aims to stimulate also an open discussion and a reflection of experience in the use of innovative experiments in engineering education.
As a result, this special session will focus on the two following main concepts (i) Innovative experiences using OER to demonstrate and present both scientific and educational studies using OER-based novel educational research techniques, and (ii) Novel solutions to promote development of competences using remote and / or virtual laboratories to discuss concepts of different engineering labs.
Several ideas and proposals will be inside this Special session, for example:
The target audience will be educators and researchers that are within the scope of interest at main conference REV 2016. Aspects should show enough evidences to achieve intended learning outcomes more effectively.
