  • Substitute the name of your Institution where the slide says “Your Institution’s”
  • The idea for OpenCourseWare came out of the Massachusetts institute for Technology (MIT), where a faculty committee that was charged in the year 200 by then-president Charles Vest with answering two questions:
  • Aanleiding seminar Board meeting this week in Delft Strong growth interntional More and more initiatives in NL but in different stages. Need to adress an number of strategic issues
  • Insert the name of your institution, its mission and its mission-oriented activities. Most mission-oriented activities will benefit from greater exposure and wider dissemination of ideas. Expect to use several slides here in explaining the connections. Mission examples: MIT: Best serve nation and world JHSPH: Improve global public health Utah State: Land grant institution Notre Dame: Catholic social mission United Nations University: contribute, through research and capacity building, to efforts to resolve the pressing global problems that are a concern of the United Nations, its Peoples and Member States. Samples: JHSPH: Improve global public health OCW will help us improve public health by taking up-to-date public health education to the people who need it most: * doctors working in the field * public health officials * community organizers Utah State is a ‘land grant’ university. “ The mission of these institutions is to teach agriculture, military tactics, and the mechanic arts, not to the exclusion of classical studies, so that members of the working classes might obtain a practical college education” OCW will help us extend life-long learning opportunities to those who could not otherwise afford them, and will help us attract a wider range of students to the benefits of formal, post-secondary education. If your university has a thematic mission, you might consider starting with courses that emphasize that theme.
  • Finally, OCW is, like most education, what we choose to make of it at each institution.

      • Syllabi
      • Readings
      • Lecture notes
      • Tests/quizzes
      • Lectures (video, audio)
      • etc…
    December 21, 2011 Open Sharing, Global Benefits Universities working together to advance education and empower people worldwide through opencourseware. It can be fully instructional, but does not need to be.

    • The OCW Story
    • Next Steps: Challenges
    • Examples
    • Future of OCW

    • Middle Ages
      • Source of information = professor
    • Book printing

    • Digital age
      • Source of information = internet
  • Gathering information 25 years ago December 21, 2011 Open Sharing, Global Benefits Picture by Hans Schleimer, University Library of Graz
  • Information in the Digital Age
    • Example: history of Dutch cuisine
    • Results 1 - 18 of about 4,920,000 for history of dutch cuisine . ( 0.19 seconds)
  • From an information monopoly to learning facilitator :
      • Context: explanation, interpretation of information
      • Social interaction
      • Feedback, examination
      • Reputation
      • Accreditation
  • B. Governments’ Expectations Change: Student numbers are growing Versus less government funding available International competition for talent Bridging the gap between secondary and higher education Life Long Learning : necessary for a competitive economy How to make use of the possibilities of the digital age

    • Teach more students
    • For a lower price
    • Teach high school graduates as well as life long learners
    • Be global
