Quality is one of the key factors for open educational resources (OER) to gain mainstream acceptance and become part of an open educational practice (OEP) within higher education. Students and teachers need to be able to see the resource’s trustworthiness, target groups, areas of use, context, accessibility etc. What quality criteria can be placed on OER and how do we establish credibility?

In this webinar you will meet the following experts in this area:

  • Professor Gráinne Conole (University of Leicester, UK) is a well-known expert in the field of open education and is involved in many international initiatives and organisations. She will describe current work with OER quality issues. She will also give examples of a number of relevant projects.
  • Dr. Ebba Ossiannilsson (University of Lund, Sweden) has recently published a doctoral thesis on quality and benchmarking of e-learning in higher education (http://jultika.oulu.fi/Record/isbn978-952-62-0041-5). She will focus on how benchmarking can be used as a method for quality assurance in an open educational culture. She will also briefly present the main international quality methods in this field.

Some of the questions to be discussed:

  • How do we create credibility and trust in OER?
  • What quality criteria and methods are used today?
  • Examples of good practice.
  • How can benchmarking help universities to move from open educational resources (OER) to open educational practices (OEP)?

Target group:
Educational decision makers, teachers, librarians, students and all interested in open educational issues.
