The Education Café is the place to catch up with colleagues once a month on Thursday afternoons to discuss relevant, fun, thought-provoking and inspiring education topics.
During the Education Café of 16 February, we will talk about open education. How do you make learning materials publicly available? How does that work with copyright? And which platforms for sharing your materials are there? There has been an increasing focus on open education recently. You can not only share your own PowerPoint, video, document, or website, but you also have access to a wide variety of learning materials created by others.
We are going to talk about this topic together with Daniël Wigboldus, Monique Schoutsen, Ad Ragas and Marc Oostendorp.
- Daniël won a SURF Education Award for his commitment to a national approach for more open education.
- Monique is an expert on open education at the university library. She is also involved with Edusources, an open database for learning materials.
- Ad is one of the authors of an open textbook about environmental toxicology.
- Marc publishes public lectures about the pronounciation of language at the University of the Netherlands.
