The Why and How of Open Education: Introduction

  1. 1. Open Education A brief introductionBy: Dr. Andreas Meiszner, United Nations University UNU-MERIT – The Netherlands Workshop on “The Why and How of Open Education: Concepts and Practices” OKCon 2011, June 31st – Berlin, Germany
  2. 2. Traditional formal class based Higher Education This is definitely NOT Open Education --- OK, it might be Open in the sense that students can exercise their right of Free Speech (and accept bad grades in return)
  3. 3. Traditional formal Higher Education in the communication age This also is definitely NOT Open Education
  4. 4. The Open Educational Resource movement If content equals education, then this IS Open Education
  5. 5. The emergence of Free / Open CoursesIf content and learning together with formally enrolled students – but withoutteacher support, with no assessment and with no certification IS STILL EDUCATION,then this IS Open Education.
  6. 6. The emergence of Free / Open Universities ?!?If content, learning together with others, support by volunteering teachers andassessment through those, but no certification IS STILL EDUCATION, then thisIS Open Education.
  7. 7. •  How we define Open Education depends on how we define Education.•  In many societies Education equals to obtaining Formal Degrees orCertifications.•  If Formal Degrees or Certifications are indeed the relevant criterion thatdefines Education, then Open Education pretty much the same then Closedtraditional formal education as we know it – except that it is not “Closed”,but “Open”.•  Luckily there are more shades then “black” and “white”, and the samelikely holds valid for Education.
