Openness and innovation are major trends in contemporary education, influencing the whole spectrum of education institutions across the globe. Technological advancement and breakthroughs are bringing about a paradigm shift in contemporary education. Modes of learning and teaching are becoming more open and innovative in terms of time, space, curriculum contents, organization, pedagogical methods, infrastructure and requirements. This change does not only happen in open universities (as well as open courses such as MOOCs of conventional institutions, but also regular courses of conventional tertiary institutions and schools. With this background, the OUHK has organized the annual conferences on open and innovative education with the following aims:

  • provide a platform for sharing research, practices and views relevant to open and innovative education;

  • facilitate networking and cross-institutional collaboration among researchers and educators in fields of educational innovation and/or openness; and

  • promote open and innovative education to enhance educational quality and achievements.

Building on the successes of the conference series in four previous years, the 2018 International Conference on Open and Innovative Education (ICOIE 2018) will be held on 04–06 July 2018 at Jockey Club Campus, the Open University of Hong Kong.
