Tomorrow, we’ll be hosting a lunchtime webinar as part of Open Education week:
Title: Topics in Open Education: what does Open Education mean in practice?
Date: 6th March, 1-2 pm

We’ll be doing a couple of things in this session. Firstly, we will be launching our Sustainable Texts: Disciplinary Conversations HEA/JISC project, and discussing some of the project ideas about OER practices with participants. Secondly, we will consider what Open Education might mean in terms of policy and practice within an institution.
Some of the types of questions we hope to consider are
- Should all students in an institution have access to all VLE courses, in the name of openness?
- How might OERs feature in external engagement work?
- Can open resources foster links with the communities beyond the university walls?
- How can OERs help promote an institution’s work?
We hope that this will be a wide-ranging discussion about Open Education and, following the webinar, in order to sustain the conversation, we will operate a poll for the rest of the week exploring some of the topics raised in the discussion.
