OportUnidad Project: An Option to Integrate the Principles of Open Education in Latin American Universities

282 views

Published on

In this talk we want to share with all of you the implementation of a course developed by the OportUnidad project, referred to as Principles and Strategies of Open Education for a Teaching Innovation (PREA, for its acronym in Spanish). This experience allowed assessing the proposal and resources created throughout the project, as well as their benefits for Latin American universities that might want to use open education.
