Taking action in the area of OER
Open Education is a new area of focus for SPARC Europe. Our sister organisation in the United States, SPARC US, has, however, made significant strides in OE advocacy in recent years, and has produced related resources and materials. Though focused on the US, worth exploring are their fact sheet and OER forum which provide interesting data and insights.
This year, we will be exploring OER in Europe. By the end of 2017, we will have released our first reports on OER best practices in Europe for higher education institutions. We will be working to develop further resources and tools over time.
