Using Open Educational Resources in Teaching

Politecnico di Milano via Polimi OPEN KNOWLEDGE


What are Open Educational Resources and why they could be a great support for teachers at every level? According to UNESCO, they are a “pedagogical approach in which direct instruction moves from the group learning space to the individual learning space, and the resulting group space is transformed into a dynamic, interactive learning environment where the educator guides students as they apply concepts and engage creatively in the subject matter.”
In this MOOC you will find:

* the basics about Open Educational Resources;
* different perspectives about key issues;
* some tips to try OERs in your course, a set of tools we will provide you, some useful resources shared by other institutions and OERs workforce.

In this MOOC you'll meet some of the greatest experts in the field, who choose every day to openly share their experience and their deep knowledge with everyone: Anant Agarwal (CEO at edX and Professor at MIT, USA), Jane-Frances Agbu (Head of OERs Unit at NOUN, Nigeria), Ariane Dumont (Professor at Western Switzerland University of Applied Sciences, CH), Cable Green (Open Education Director at Creative Commons, USA), Rory McGreal (Professor and UNESCO/Commonwealth of Learning Chairholder in Open Educational Resources at Athabasca University, Canada), Joseph Pickett (Publication Director at MIT OpenCourseWare, USA), Susanna Sancassani (Managing Director at Politecnico di Milano – METID, Italy), Robert Schuwer (Lector OER at Fontys University, Netherland), Katsusuke Shigeta (Associate Professor at Hokkaido University, JAPAN) and Andrea Zanni (former President at Wikimedia Italia).

    As a teacher I learnt a lot by following this course. I understood the significance of incorporating OCR into my teaching practice. I certainly got teoretical and practical ideas to improve my lessons and got more and more convinced of the importance of sharing.
