  1. 1. OER in Sweden in an International Perspective Jan Hylén
  2. 2. Agenda The situation for OER in Sweden – a rather gloomy picture Why do we have this situation? What can we expect for the future of OER in Sweden? www.janhylen.se
  3. 3. OER in Sweden School level: Fairly good supply of resources but very little awareness of the concept of OER  The Link Larder, Lektion.se, UR University level: Less supply of (Swedish) resources, and uneven awareness  4 universities on iTunesU  A few universities (2-3) with an OER policy  Experimentation with Open Ed. Practice  Very little research on OER www.janhylen.se
  4. 4. Sweden compared to other countries According to OECD (2012):  6 countries have national OER policies in place  7 countries have OER policies in development  11 countries are discussing a national policy  4 countries (incl. Sweden) no policy and no preparations  Further more: no mentioning of OER in official Swedish documents www.janhylen.se
  5. 5. Why is the situation like this? Low (or non-existent) awareness of OER on ministerial level Sweden is a very decentralized country – makes knowledge building more difficult ICT in education has not been on the political agenda for 12 years Strong reform agenda in other areas – decision makers on all levels have been very busy www.janhylen.se
  6. 6. The Future of OER in Sweden The grass root movement is growing  OER Sweden is an excellent example Some universities are making progress – setting the example The Nordic cooperation might raise the awareness MOOC Continuing interest on international level  UNESCO  OECD www.janhylen.se
  7. 7. Upcoming work within OECD/CERI ”Building the evidence base of OER in education”  ”A stronger evidence base on OER would allow governments to move beyond advocacy based on attractive claims and propositions to evidence-based open policies which effectively generate systemic efficiency gains.” The economic benefits of OER The social benefits of OER The innovation benefits of OER Policy dialogue 2013-14 www.janhylen.se
  8. 8. Thank You for Your Attention jan@janhylen.se
