Alex Grech's curator insight, October 31, 2013 3:20 AM

What I find really interesting in this piece is the need for academic institutions to recognise that disruption can also happen from 'within' - the younger or more curious members of faculty who are using the tools they can find to improve the quality of teaching and learning.

Henri Pirkkalainen - OER internationalization barriers

Henri Pirkkalainen - OER internationalization barriers | On education | Scoop.it

Currently, there are millions of learning materials on the web, some structured in repositories and databases, some just hidden on the web as part of personal homepages. This sounds extremely promising in terms of internationalization, which could be seen to include creation and sharing of educational resources that is followed by adaptations of these resources to new contexts. But is this really taking place on a large scale? - No- But why not? This we will be investigating within this article as well as clarifying our interpretation of internationalization of OER.

To frame the problem as OERs not taking off, a global perspective is required. From a global perspective, it's quite difficult to judge whether OERs have taken off or not.

Continuing the strand of interviews with thought leaders in Higher Education in the UK, this post contains the highlights from an interview I had earlier this month with Amber Thomas, who is Programme Manager, Digital Infrastructure at JISC.

One of the things I've most appreciated about the MOOCs I've participated in is the work faculty and providers have done to make quality resources available free. It certainly makes a big difference in affordable learning.

[EU] Commission presents new Rethinking Education strategy

[EU] Commission presents new Rethinking Education strategy | On education | Scoop.it

"Digital learning and recent trends in Open Educational Resources (OER) are enabling fundamental changes in the education world, expanding the educational offer beyond its traditional formats and borders. New ways of learning, characterised by personalisation, engagement, use of digital media, collaboration, bottom-up practices and where the learner or teacher is a creator of learning content are emerging, facilitated by the exponential growth in OER available via the internet. Europe should exploit the potential of OER much more than is currently the case. This requires good computer skills, but some Member States are still lagging behind as seen in the Education and Training Monitor 2012, with 9 Member States with over 50% of 16-74 year olds with no or low computer skills. While the use of ICT in education and training has been high on the policy agenda, critical elements are not in place to enable digital learning and OER to be mainstreamed across all education and training sectors. A coherent strategy at EU level could address the scope, size and complexity of the challenges in support of actions of the Member States and the entire chain of stakeholders."
