2017 Perspectives on Open Education EDLW 2017

Tuesday, November 7, 2017, 13:00-14:30 CET

Moderator: Fabio Nascimbeni, EDEN Executive Committee member

Format: Presentations, panel debate


Open Education is meant to contribute both to innovation dynamics within institutions and to international academic cooperation and networking: this is being increasingly proven by a number of relevant experiences in the higher education field, as well as in other educational areas. In this webinar, we will explore these important relations between openness and innovation on one side and openness and internationalisation on the other, with both practical cases (focusing on virtual mobility and augmented reality) and with broader reflections, including a review of the work done during the Year of Open declined along the innovation and internationalisation axis.
