It was a busy week with all the activities during the fifth Open Education Week. Every year the Open Education Week is a great way to share our thoughts about Open Education and inspire others to start with opening up their education. Here an overview of the activities I participated in.
Getting Started with Open Education
In Monday I started with an Action Lab on Getting Started with Open Education. We had a group of 20 people among many teachers who were new to Open Education. Below are the slides of that sessions
Workshop Open Education
On Wednesday Martijn Ouwehand and I were asked to give a workshop about Open Education at the European Students' Convention. This event was organised by ISO and LSVb, in cooperation with ESU.
I already blogged about this earlier this week.
Open Education Seminar & Debate
On Thursday we organised a seminar. It started with a keynote of Anka Mulder, which included a few minutes about Open Science by Wilma van Wezenbeek and ended with a panel discussion with some of the partners of our Credit for MOOCs alliance. Below is the recording of that session:
After the keynote there were 7 presentations in two parallel rounds. These sessions were not recorded, but the slides are available on our website. The closing of the day was a debate, which I moderated.
In the week before and during the Open Education Week we asked people to sketch or write what Open Education means to them. Many have submitted a card and Mark van Huystee made an awesome drawing of it. You see a small version as header image of the blog. For a full version go the our open sketching blog. you can also see the making process of it.
Looking back at this week give me a feeling of satisfaction and proud. Satisfaction because we organised a lot of events and everything worked out as planned and proud in the leadership my university is showing in open education. I hope that we have inspired the participants of all the events to take steps in opening up their education. If you need help or more inspiration, don't hasitate to contact me or one of my colleagues. We are always willing to share!
