OpenMed final conference on Open Education Future for Mediterranean Higher Education

The OpenMed project “Opening up Education in South-Mediterranean countries” will host its final conference on October 10, 2018 at UNIMED in Rome (Italy).

In the South-Mediterranean countries the demand of Higher Education often exceeds capacity in the existing HE system, and therefore the use and integration of Open Educational Resources (OER) and Open Educational Practices (OEP) are possible ways to facilitate learners’ access to the university, thus promoting equity, inclusion and democratisation of higher education.

In the past three years OpenMed has widened participation in open education, provided training for educators, equipped innovation centers for open education, and developed institutional action plans and recommendations for higher education leaders and policy makers in the region.

Beyond a discussion of the project results, the conference will provide visions for the future of Open Education in the Mediterranean and will encourage collaborations among project partners and stakeholders working on Open Education in higher education.
