Open Educational Resources and Policy: Overview and Synergies with Fellow Open Movements

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Over the last five years, Open Educational Resources (OER) policies have increasingly developed around the world, creating new opportunities and introducing new challenges. The European "Opening Up Education" initiative, launched last year, brought the idea of open education into the mainstream, while also introducing the potential for "openwashing": thinning out the standards of openness. The workshop will be targeted at people working on the development of open policies, but who are not necessarily knowledgeable about OER. We will start with a global overview of OER policy, a quick snapshot of key cases and models being adopted. In the second part, we will lead a discussion on what is a model OER policy and how it related to other open policies (for Open Access or Open Data, for instance).

This session was co-created by the Open Education Open Knowledge Working Group. This session remains editorially independent as it was put together in consultation with the Programme Team following the same guidelines as for other sessions at the festival.
