The Opening Educational Practices in Scotland (OEPS) Project was funded for 3 years from Summer 2014 until Summer2017 and ended on the 31st July. The project had a focus on the use of open education in widening participation and lifelong learning. There is an extensive collection of free courses, reports, briefings, case studies and workshop design that are all openly licensed and available for use and reversioning that will be available beyond the end of the project on 31st July 2017. The OEPS collection is hosted at www.open.edu/openlearncreate/oeps. The project website www.oepscotland.org will also remain accessible as an archive of the project’s activities.
The Promise of Open Education’ conference is the final event of the OEPS project and will mark the end of the project. However, it does not represent the end of the conversation on open educational practices in Scotland, hence the theme of the conference – ‘The Promise of Open Education’. The conference will look at where Scotland is living up to the promise of open education, and where there is more to be done to realise this potential and consider how to do this.
Whether you have never heard of open education, are just getting to grips with it, or are a seasoned open educational practitioner or OER user, you are warmly invited to attend and share your experiences of open education and to learn about what others are doing.
When: Monday 11th September
What time: 1pm-4pm (lunch provided)
