Partners on the OpenMed project are working on the design of the OpenMed training of trainers course, a blended training course aimed at building capacity among universities in the South Mediterranean region on Open Educational Resources (OER) and Open Education approaches and practices.
The training course targets primarily university teachers and secondarily university managers and ICT support staff, offering training opportunities to Higher Education staff with a focus on know-how and skills to use, reuse and remix OER and assist them with the start-up of open educational practices.
The training course consist of:
- one week of intensive face-to-face training at Politecnico di Torino on September 25-30, 2017
- an online training phase from October 2017 to March 2018
The course modules structure and facilitation model is available at: http://openmedproject.eu/pre-announcement-training/
The OpenMed team hopes that by making the initial design of the training course publicly available, we can embody the principles of openness and collaboration underpinning open education. We are eager to hear comments from others with insight and recommendations on our activities and on the initial design of the training course.
