This is a transcript of a talk I gave as part of the Open Med Project webinar series.
What is open education?
Open education is many things to many people and there’s no one hard and fast definition.
- A practice?
- A philosophy?
- A movement?
- A licensing issue?
- A human right?
- A buzz word?
- A way to save money?
This is one description of the open education movement that I particularly like from the not for profit organization OER Commons…
“The worldwide OER movement is rooted in the human right to access high-quality education. The Open Education Movement is not just about cost savings and easy access to openly licensed content; it’s about participation and co-creation.”
