The webinar will be in format of a roundtable discussion. Informed by our work on various open educational projects of international scope (POERUP, SPEED, TOUCANS, SPIDER, and iTunesUReach, among others) our team will share their perspectives and invite discussion on intercontinental policies for OER uptake, developments in the use of open resources and open practice in learning design, and issues around open practice in mobile learning, with a special focus on the view from the developing world.
Hope to virtually see you there!
