The role of Open Education in emergency situations like COVID19 - A strategic perspective

Presentation at the Open Education for a Better World EDUSCOPE event, 2022.

In this presentation, we will review the potential of open education and open educational resources (OER) to contribute to a resilient and effective education system in the light of the Covid19 pandemic. OER will be viewed as an innovation and enabler for education according to the 4 types of innovation defined by the Oslo Manual. The presentation will close with a strategic view on how the so-called “new normal” following the pandemic can inspire an educational landscape with the learner at the centre.

  2. Open education resources
    The general characteristics of OER are:
    1. They can be any type of learning resource
    used in an educational setting.
    2. They are often, though not exclusively,
    offered in a digital format.
    3. The digital format allows the reuse, sharing,
    adaptation and repurposing of the resource
    for
    4. a different educational setting than the
    original one.
    Open Educational Resources (OER) are learning,
    teaching and research materials in any format
    and medium that reside in the public domain or
    are under copyright that have been released
    under an open license, that permit no-cost
    access, re-use, re-purpose, adaptation and
    redistribution by others.

  4. We have now seen that the education
    system, in general, is unprepared and
    vulnerable to external threats. As a
    response to the global educational crisis,
    online emergency remote teaching has
    been put into practice.
    However, …online distance education
    involves more than simply uploading
    educational content, rather, it is a learning
    process that provides learners agency,
    responsibility, flexibility and choice. It is a
    complex process that requires careful
    planning, designing and determination of
    aims to create an effective learning ecology.

  9. Coping with
    change of
    product
    Complaints both from teachers and the general public caught
    the attention of MoE which immediately took actions to
    redress this tendency, for example, by recommending the use
    of already available OERs or suggesting leading teachers share
    their ‘lectures’ among their peers rather than requiring all
    teachers to showcase their own resources.
    …proved to be a great challenge for the majority of K12
    teachers, especially senior ones. K12 teachers were
    overwhelmed by the deep learning curve involved and there
    seemed to be some chaos at the beginning.
