The OERup! project takes up the need to promote and foster the successful implementation of OER (Open Educational Resources) and OEPs (Open Educational Practices) in adult education in Europe in order to widen participation in Open Education.
The main aims of this initiative is to:
The project will aim to address decision makers, educational professionals of AEIs, as well as policy makers with the following objectives:
An online platform will provide practitioners with a training package of blended-learning and materials on the topic of OER, developed by five established European partners, in order to support AEIs across Europe, their management, staff and teachers.
A website and a Google+ community will also help to share OEP experiences as well as provide all practitioners with a quality framework and a status quo analysis of European regions, all of which will be developed throughout the lifetime of the project.
Our intention is to bring together as many players as possible on this issue – not only education providers, teachers, colleges and universities but also relevant policy makers.
