Welcome to OpenMed!

  • Open Education Training Week, we are almost there!

Five partners from Europe and nine from South Mediterranean Countries are working together to widening participation and adoption of Open Educational Resources (OER) and Open Educational Practices (OEP) as a bottom-up approach to support the modernisation of the Higher Education sector in Morocco, PalestineEgypt and Jordan.

OpenMed is an international cooperation project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Capacity Building in Higher Education programme of the European Union during the period 15 October 2015 – 14 October 2018. It explores the adoption of strategies and channels that embrace the principles of openness and reusability within the context of South-Mediterranean universities.

The project will also offer the possibility to other universities from Morocco, Palestine, Egypt, Jordan or any other Southern Mediterranean country to join the action as community partners. Stay tuned to know more about the upcoming exciting Open Education adventures between the two shores of the Mediterranean basin!

OpenMed participates in the Year of Open, a global celebration of Open Education initiated by the Open Education Consortium, by actively committing to participate and contribute to widen participation on Open Education.

 

2017 marks the 30th anniversary or the Erasmus programme! Today, Erasmus+ offers opportunities across Europe and beyond to individuals and organisations in education, training, youth and sport. OpenMed is celebrating this special year in 2017: 30 years of enriching lives and opening minds.
