How to build Open Education capacity among university educators | UNIMC Online Webinar 2/12, 10:00

In the traditional narrative, Open Education approaches, including the use of OER, MOOCs and open teaching practices, aim to increase equity of education and at improving the quality of teaching, mostly by allowing the re-use of openly-licensed contents produced by others. This is certainly true, but research is starting to document the fact that Open Educational approaches bear also the potential to innovate teaching practices, by facilitating students engagement, responsibility and co-creation of knowledge. The webinar will present some interesting open teaching practices, connecting them to the competences that educators need to build in order to put those in practice, and providing some ideas on how these competences can be developed.
