  • Cetis has a wide range of clients right across the education sector, both nationally and internationally. These are just a few of the organisations we work with.

  • Drivers for Open Scotland
  • Scottish institutions and colleges are able to access resources produced through UKOER, but were not able to bid for project funding. As a result open practice is arguably less well embedded in Scottish education than south of the border.
  • Technology enhanced learning framework. CC licensed & successfully adopted by a number of other universities.
  • 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.
     
  • Despite these encouraging developments there has been no policy guidance or funded initiatives to encourage the sharing of open educational resources or to embed open educational practice across Scottish education.
  • We also discussed the potential development of an Open Declaration for Scotland. There was general agreement that the Paris declaration was a good thing, but too limited in scope and that any Scottish declaration should focus on education more widely.
  • Every cause needs a hashtag.
  • College sector has much to gain from increased access to open educational resources and librarians have a key role to play in engaging with staff and disseminating open education practice.
