We are delighted to announce the winners of the 2019 GO-GN Awards for Best Open Education Research Paper and Best Open Research Practice, recognising the tremendous work of GO-GN members researching open education and being open practitioners.

The Award for Best Open Education Research Paper goes to Michael Paskevicius for ‘Conceptualizing open educational practices through the lens of constructive alignment‘, published in OpenPraxis.

An Honorable Mention is given to Sarah Lambert for ‘Changing our (Dis)Course: A Distinctive Social Justice Aligned Definition of Open Education‘, published in the Journal of Learning for Development.

The Award for Best Open Research Practice goes to Caroline Kuhn, who embodies open practice throughout her research, and has been one of the most active members of the GO-GN community.

Congratulations to all the winners. They will be presented with their awards (and prize money) at an informal gathering of GO-GN family on Wednesday 10th April in Galway at the OER19 Reception

The quality of submissions this year was exceptional, and in independent scoring by four judges, only a few points separated all the entries. I would take this opportunity to thank the members of the Awards Committee (last year’s winner Glenda Cox and the OERH team) and all GO-GNers who submitted an entry.  The call for the 2020 Awards will be open in May.
