Supporting European Open Education and MOOCs: Governmental and institutional roles (EADTU-EU Summit 2017)

  1. 1. Supporting European Open Education and MOOCs: Governmental and institutional roles
  2. 2. Aim SCORE2020 project • Support the setup of regional expertise centres for the development and use of MOOCs and Open Education. • Most countries of the partnership already started with some way of cross-institutional support of open education and/or MOOCs (e.g., Norway, France, the Netherlands, Ireland). • The partners will exchange and jointly develop expertise and will develop a common approach. Darco Jansen
  3. 3. MOOCs are hot! • However, these figures exclude many European MOOC (list MOOC offering of the big MOOC platforms) • Many European universities have built an own platform or use a regional platform with a limited visibility. • Most universities are not accepted by the big MOOC platforms in the US by lacking the reputation (in ranking) and finances to become a partner.
  4. 4. MOOC uptake in Europe • At least about 40% of HEIs in Europe are having MOOCs or planning to develop MOOCs soon against 12% in the US • Strongest involvement is seen in those regions with supportive policies and structures • MOOC initiatives in central and eastern Europe are still in a vulnerable starting phase.
  5. 5. Stimulate European MOOC uptake • As MOOCs are for massive audiences and relate to scalability – joint partnerships are essential. • The regional differences in languages, cultures and pedagogical approaches hinder the development and uptake of MOOCs at overall Europe level • Survey (2015) amongst 150-HEIs demonstrates that many European higher education institutions are willing to collaborate on scalable services in MOOC provision, and that a regional collaboration is much more likely that outsourcing services to commercial parties.

  6. 6. Most important support services to collaborate on
  7. 7. Most important support services to collaborate on
  8. 8. Quality Assurance spectrum Check compliance with quality standards Support institutions in quality enhancement OpenupEd label Institutional MOOC quality label, flexibility to:  set relevant goals  demonstrate quality of performance  plan for improvement Checklist Quality dimensions, for example  Is it a MOOC, or not?  Quality of the design of MOOCs  Accessibility  Technical platform and support Output 8: MOOC Quality and it’s use by different target groups
  9. 9. Most important support services to collaborate on
  10. 10. SCORE2020 – support in design of MOOCS Intellectual Outputs • O4: Conditions for and characteristics of MOOCs design models • O5: Instructional design models for different types /settings of MOOCs • O6: Train-the-trainer mini Open Online Course Disclosing (best) practices of 8 SCORE2020 partners • Capacity building in designing and developing MOOCs • 5 multiplier Events and 2 training Events with 237 attendees with strong focus on design of MOOCs Darco Jansen
  11. 11. SCORE2020 – how to organize the support services Darco Jansen Important role governmental policy, HEIs, providers, employment agencies, etc. in uptake and support Intellectual Outputs • O7: Awareness raising based on evidence available • O10: SWOT analysis / benchmarking regional support centres • O11: Scenario’s for support of different target groups • O12: Business models for regional support centres
  12. 12. Surveys held amongst participation SCORE2020 events (response 56)
  13. 13. Survey 2016 amongst >100 HEIs in Europe
  14. 14. • Most reasons in favour for cross-institutional collaboration are related to beneficiaries of sharing, the scalability needed and a joint quality assurance. • Some comments are related to not knowing the (dis)advantage of MOOCs both strategically and on teaching itself.
  15. 15. SCORE2020 – towards sustainable support • SCORE2020 partners will continue with improving and extending their regional support structures (can be cross- institutional, regional or national) • Other regions are interested and for example Czech Republic is initiating a national support structure based and with help of SCORE2020 partners. • Partnership continues with European collaboration through OpenupEd initiative providing support structure at different levels (O13: International collaboration of regional centres) • Starting European MOOC Consortium acting as a European voice Darco Jansen
  16. 16. Panel discussion • regional/national opportunities regarding support services on Open education and MOOCs • local challenges to overcome and/or are already tackled • status in organising such regional support • future ambition regarding regional/national/European level Darco Jansen
