In this webinar, we will identify whether OERs were a solution or being used in the last year in education; and how OERs may be used in the future.
Benefit of this resource and how to make the best use of it
During the last year, with education restrictions due to the global pandemic, when educational organizations across the globe were forced to move online under demanding timelines and with budget constraints, many educators have relied on open educational resources OERs to fill a critical need. Open education and OERs have been used for two decades at different education levels, not always gaining full traction in schools or higher education. In this webinar, we will identify whether OERs were a solution or being used in the last year in education; and how OERs may be used in the future. In our quest for shaping the future of higher education, do we consider open education a solution and OERs and practices as part of the education ecosystem? What problems might OERs help educators resolve and how we can harness the value of OERs for higher education? Can we consider the future of education is open and, if yes, what strategies can we use to make this happen? Three dynamic and insightful speakers with extended experiences and whose voices are valued and command attention in the education community, will try to inspire us for how to share and collaborate our way through the storm that has encapsulated higher education.
