Designing for participatory learning in open educational environments
“The openEd 2.0 project brings together stakeholders in formal and informal education from different countries aiming to increase the speed of innovation in education, to ensure continuous provision of up to date and relevant learning materials, and to promote participatory learning, including active learning, creative problem solving, learning by doing, critical thinking and creativity.
The openEd 2.0 project proposes to test a cost-efficient, geographically unlimited, free and open educational framework on business and management, providing formal learners and individuals outside formal education with an efficient and sustainable lifelong learning infrastructure. This framework will be implemented and tested by means of 3 consecutive pilot courses which will take place during Fall 2010, Spring 2011 and Fall 2011. The design of the openEd 2.0 course - Business and management competencies in a Web 2.0 world - is currently on its way, and in the light of openness, we highly welcome you to contribute to put this course together.
The openEd 2.0 course
The openEd course on “Business and Management Competencies in a Web 2.0 world” will start on April 26th 2011 in its 2nd edition!
openEd is a FREE/OPEN course targeting business students and practitioners alike. The course consists of 10 modules allowing participants to choose the individual modules they are interested in. This is to say that you can either take all of the 10 modules, or just those ones that you are interested at.
openEd offers something to all: You can either TAKE IT or TEACH IT - make the course suit your needs!!!
The 2nd edition of the openEd course comes with updated course contents and improved guidance & navigation! Based upon the comprehensive feedback we received from 1st edition course participants all of the course contents, guides and navigation have been carefully reviewed and improved!
The 2nd edition of the openEd course now provides educators around the globe with the opportunity to offer individual / extra services to course participants, such as In-class lessons, private virtual support or marked assessment and accreditation / certification. Educators can choose to offer such extra services against "fee" of for "free"!!! This is to say that we invite ***YOU*** to join us and to teach the course on a local base!
