  • Technology enhanced learning framework. CC licensed & successfully adopted by a number of other universities.
  • There are also some interesting cross sector developments…
  • SQA hope that this initiative will encourage more traditional parts of the education sector to engage with innovative open approaches to recording achievements and accomplishments.  
  • Outwith the formal education sector Wikimedia UK has also been active in Scotland  
  • Another open organisation that has an active presence in Scotland is the Open Knowledge Foundation.

  • Every cause needs a hashtag.
  • There have also been some interesting political developments…
  • At an event last week organised by the University of Edinburgh’s Centre for Research in Education Inclusion & Diversity

    38. 38. Recent policy developments “I believe that Massive Open Online Courses have the potential to change the way that learning is delivered. I am aware that the Open University and the UHI already use open learning resources and exploit the power of online curriculum delivery. A number of our institutions are also beginning to exploit MOOCS. I would ask the SFC to take forward a short term project to further develop and enhance the sector’s capacity in online pedagogy and learning technology.” ~ Scottish Government’s Letter of Guidance Open Developments in Scotland, College Development Network, 5th Feb 2014.
    39. 39. Recent policy developments “I am very encouraged by the potential of massive open online courses – short courses delivered online that can be taken by anyone, anywhere. Of course, we must ensure quality of provision, however, free resources such as these have great potential to provide pathways to formal learning and widen participation in higher education. That is why I have indicated to the Scottish Funding Council that, in supporting this new work, they should facilitate the best open practice in Scotland and enhance the sector’s capacity and reputation for developing publicly available online learning materials.” ~ Mike Russell, Minister for Education Future of HE in Scotland and the UK Open Developments in Scotland, College Development Network, 5th Feb 2014.
