The idea of Open Educational Practices and Resources have gained ground over the last decade, attracting the interest and support of many universities along with philanthropic organisations, governmental agencies and public bodies – including UNESCO, the European Commission and the US Department of Education, just to mention a few. This half-day symposium focuses on the opportunities and complexities of openness in education, drawing on examples from different geographies and institutional contexts.
The Symposium will see the intervention of prof. Martin Weller, Professor of Educational Technology at the Open University in the UK, of prof. Jacqui Speculand who leads the Open Badges team and prof. Sana El Harbi, Professor of Quantitative Methods at the University of Sousse (Tunisia) and recently honored as a UNESCO Chair in OER.
