Acceleration of innovating higher education using IT, a Dutch national program
To boost innovation in higher education in the Netherlands using IT, the 1st of January a four-year national program has started. The program is a joint initiative of the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU), the Netherlands Association of Universities of Applied Sciences and SURF, the collaborative ICT organisation for Dutch education and research, and is funded by grants from the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science.
One of the strands is towards (open) educational resources. This strand is aiming to realize conditions whereby institutions can offer an optimal mixture of open and closed resources to their learners.
In the seminar, the ideas, ambitions and approach of both the program and the strand will be presented.
Robert Schuwer is Professor Open Educational Resources (OER) at Fontys University of Applied Sciences, School of ICT in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. In September 2016 he was appointed Chairholder of the UNESCO Chair on OER at Fontys. Since 2006 the majority of his work is about OER and Open Education. His current research is on adoption of OER and other forms of open online education by the early and late majority of teachers. He is chairman of the SURF Dutch Special Interest Group Open Education.

MOOC and open praxis in Latin America: challenges for a sustainable open education
MOOCs and open practices have brought with them contributions for Open Education. In the Latin American context there have been experiences where MOOCs have contributed in strategic areas, for example, the set of 12 MOOCs in energy sustainability where more than 160,000 participants have been training, mainly in Spanish-speaking countries, emanating from a macro project supported by the National Council of Science and Technology, the Energy Ministery of Mexico and the Tecnologico de Monterrey (https://energialab.tec.mx/en). Other open practices have been worked through the UNESCO Chair of the Open Educational Movement for Latin America (https://oerunesco.tec.mx/), where educational communities from more than 15 countries collaborate. In them educational innovations have been integrated that have thrown data of successes and challenges that still require a double analysis of projection. These challenges multiply when we think of an education for sustainable development and when we visualize horizons for Open Education in the post-MOOC Era.
