  • 15:00-15:45: Layers of Openness, Alastair Creelman, Open Networked Learning & Linnaeus University, Sweden

    Increasing concerns about privacy and digital public spaces affect the design of open online courses. Open Networked Learning is a PBL-based (problem-based learning) open professional development course for university teachers and has had to slowly adapt from being a fully open course to a layered approach where certain course spaces are public whilst others are restricted. We will present the thinking behind this approach and outline future challenges.

  • 15:45-16:00: Coffee Break
  • 16:00-17:00: A Culture of Sharing, Lorna Campbell, Open.Ed, University of Edinburgh, UK

    This talk will explore how the University of Edinburgh provides strategic support for OER at the institutional level through its OER Policy and Service. It will also provide examples from Edinburgh of how integrating open education into the curriculum, through co-creation and OER assignments, can enhance students‘ digital skills and bring a wide range of benefits.
