We are delighted that Torunn Gjelsvik of Fleksibel utdanning Norge will be speaking at the 2019 EADL conference - Connected Learning.
The title of the presentation is Viable Education with OER.
Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching, learning and research materials in any medium – digital or otherwise – that reside in the public domain or have been released under an open license that permits no-cost access, use, adaptation and redistribution by others with no or limited restrictions (definition by UNESCO).
For educators and publishers with a long history of charging students to get access to proprietary course content, OER might seem to overthrow their business model. On the other hand, the sharing and opening up of learning resources can stimulate innovation, creativity and new business models for education and knowledge development. The OER movement has now grown to be a global force that influences political strategies and public policy support in many countries. How do we unleash the potential of OER and still secure viable business models for education?
