OEREU - Open Educational Resources in Europe

OEREU - Open Educational Resources in Europe | Open Educational Resources (OER) | Scoop.it

OER refers to  "the open provision of educational resources, enabled by ICT, for  consultation, use and adaptation by a community of users for non-commercial  purposes" (UNESCO, 2002). Important to note that those resources are not  limited to content, but comprise also "the creation of open source  software, development tools and the development of standards and licensing  tools" (OLCOS, 2007). It is acknowledged by policymakers and researchers  that a fundamental transformation of education and learning throughout Europe  is needed to address the new skills and competences required if Europe is to remain competitive, overcome the current  economic crisis, grasp new opportunities and insure social justice and cohesion.  In order to provide stakeholders with evidence on the contribution of Open  Education to those aims, and in pursuance of promoting the use of OER in school  education, higher education and adult education, the Open Educational Resources  in Europe (OEREU) project will provide a critical assessment of OER initiatives  and practices in Europe, develop sector-specific foresight scenarios to  illustrate the benefits, carry out a representative survey on the use of OER,  identify challenges across all sectors and, jointly with stakeholders, develop,  discuss and propose recommendations for the further development and  mainstreaming of OER in Europe.
