Transcript of the webinar along with slides (thank you Lorna!)


Open education can expand inclusive and equitable access to education and lifelong learning,  widen participation, and create new opportunities for the next generation of teachers and learners, preparing them to become fully engaged digital citizens. In addition, open education can promote knowledge transfer while enhancing quality and sustainability, supporting social inclusion and creating a global culture of collaboration and sharing.
This webinar will provide a broad introduction to open education, covering definitions of openness, open licensing, open educational resources and open education practice, while at the same time highlighting the benefits and affordances of open education and exploring how to engage students and learners in the co-creation of OER.
