7 March 2019, 13:00 CET

Open Education Week webinar

Presentation and discussion


Moderator: Antonella Poce, EDEN Fellow, EDEN NAP SC Chair, University Roma III, Italy


In the context of Open Education, quality assessment tools are necessary. Speaking of  quality means quality assurance, quality audit and quality enhancement.

Atenas and Havemann (2014) list a series of actions to identify resources to be taken into consideration such as choose resources already valued as high quality by peers, start a community discussion on a specific resource, use resources where keywords and metadata are clearly identified.

During the webinar different perspectives will be addressed thanks to the participation of various experts in the field. Moreover, quality models developed in the Erasmus Plus Open Virtual Mobilty and Digiculture projects will be presented. The webinar has been planned and organised thanks to the joint involvement of EDEN NAP and SIG and TEL representatives.
