Webinar: what does ‘open education’ mean in practice?

5 March 2012

Today is the first day of Open Education Week and, as part of this, members of the public, students and staff alike are being invited to take part in a webinar entitled ‘Topics in open education: what does open education mean in practice?’.

Man working at laptop

Running from 1pm-2pm tomorrow (Tuesday March 6th), participants will discuss what open education might mean in terms of policy and practice within an institution, considering questions such as:

  • Should all students in an institution have access to all virtual learning environment (VLE) courses in the name of openness?
  • How might open educational resources (OERs) feature in external engagement work?
  • Can open resources foster links with communities beyond the university walls?
  • How can OERs help promote an institution’s work?

The webinar will also mark the launch of a new UCL open education project called ‘Sustainable Texts and Disciplinary Conversations’.

To join the webinar, simply enter via Blackboard and follow the instructions.
