1. #knowhow : Open Educational Practice (OEP).
I am more aware about open courses which may be
available to me. I have accessed and participated in 3
online open courses during this project which prior to
being involved, I probably wouldn't have done. This was
due to these courses being shared through the project
platform …I am now registered on the FutureLearn
website and find this really easy to use and informative.
I'm also becoming a little more daring on Twitter!

In education, openness is a concept that advocates transparency and the
lowering or removal of barriers at all levels within an institution. This includes the
processes involved in research, teaching and learning.
The WIHEA #knowhow project provides advice, community and resources to
help you discover open educational practices which can reduce the costs of
learning and improve the impact of your work through safer digital presence.
The project team evaluated, curated and reflected upon resources to provide
access the learning opportunities available through open, connected practice.
Our research looks at existing practice across the Warwick community and offers
pathways to open educational practices which touch on all of the 10 dimensions
presented in this graphic (from the European Commission’s Opening up
Education: A support framework for Higher Education Institutions.)
The project used the metaphor of wildflowers to communicate the value of
working “in the open” online. Envelopes containing a wildflower seed mix
were distributed within the Warwick community, sharing the project blog
and inviting social media connections using the #WIHEA #knowhow
