Open (content in) Education Erasmus: Through Open (content in) Education Erasmus creates the best positive societal impact possible



Open Science & Societal Impact are two major themes at Erasmus University. The goals related to these themes cannot be achieved without Open Education. Together with the library, the ORS program is organizing two events on Open Education on June 11th and 12th to share information on Open Education so that EUR staff can learn more about the movement and understand the effect of sharing and incorporating open educational resources in their courses.

The best positive societal impact Erasmus University creates is via our 35.000 students. Imagine the potential increase of that impact the moment Erasmus actively applies Open (content in) Education! However, Erasmus is still a little hesitant when it comes to actively applying Open Educational Resources (OER) and Open Educational Practices (OEP). How can Erasmus Library facilitate a change to Open (content in) Education? 

During today’s meeting, Wilma van Wezenbeek (Npuls | Open Educational Resources) will address why Open (content in) Education is so valuable and how Npuls empowers Higher Education within the Netherlands. Lucinda Jones (Director Erasmus Library) shares the Library’s vision on OER/OEP and how it ties into the EUR-strategy for the upcoming years. Brenda Lems (UKB workgroup Open Online Education) sheds light on how close collaboration between libraries and communities within Higher Education ensures a healthy ecosystem.
