Today I was invited to speak at the fourth day of the 2012 Ticer International Summerschool. Ticer stands for Tilburg Innovation Centre for Electronic Resources. Ticer is a business unit of Tilburg University's Library and IT Services.
The theme of the 4th day was Connection Students, Faculty and Resources and I was asked to talk about Open Education (and it's context) in relation to the library. This was the abstract I send in a couple of months ago:
Universities no longer have the monopoly on educational content. Students can find almost anything online. More and more universities are sharing their educational content as Open Educational Resources (OER). In 2007, Delft University of Technology started participating in the OpenCourseWare programme. It started as a pilot and has brought the university many good things.
In this presentation, Willem van Valkenburg will go into details about the reason to start with OER and especially what it has brought Delft University. He will also take a look at the future with Open Education, Open Educational Practice, and how libraries can lead.
