The OpenMed project has been presented in the EDEN synergy session B5 on Wednesday, June 15th 2016.
Cristina Stefanelli presented the current developments of OpenMed and the current analysis of good practices about widening participation in Open Educational Resources in the Arab Mediterranean countries.
See the EDEN conference programme here.
The overarching goal of OpenMed is to raise awareness and facilitate the adoption of Open Educational Resources (OER) and Open Educational Practices (OEP) in the South Mediterranean region, with a particular focus on Egypt, Jordan, Morocco and Palestine.
OpenMed fosters the role of universities as knowledge providers not only to their on-campus students but also beyond the walls of institutions, especially towards disadvantaged groups (e.g. low-income peoples, disabled students, people living in rural areas, learners at risk of low achievement, refugees).
