Participants' productions

Within this module, participants had the responsibility to choose their learning path - of course they have been accompagnied and one example scenario with relevant activities has been shared upfront (point 6 below).

As a result, we have very interesting and diverse learning experiences:

  • Also from South Asia, Zubair, after gaining an overiview of Open Education, wanted to find some OER for secondary levels in maths and science, identified some and evaluated them. His work is accessible from CAS Digital Learning in Emergencies/module4-Zubair
  • From the Middle East, Enas and Manal, have chosen to work on a project to design a training to support teachers in crisis contexts, looking for specific OER and awarding a badge in the end. Their work is accessible from CAS Digital Learning in Emergencies/module4-Enas&Manal
  • Mesfin has worked on a topic similar to that of Margaret and Lucy, building teachers' capacity with regard to psychological first aid in emergencies contexts. His work is not accessible on-line.
  • Veronicah has worked on the development of accessible OER to be used by children with disabilities. Her work is accessible from CAS Digital Learning in Emergencies/module4-Veronica
  • Augustin's aim was to get an overview of Open Education, advantages and disadvantages of OER and assess the situation in his context. His work is not accessible on-line.

Section 4: Project

Section 4 addresses the following general objective: Script an Open education project for your context and implement a part of it.

The aim is to develop a training sequence for a target audience on a topic of your choice. The training sequence should be designed using Open educational resources and practices and award badges for participants who complete the training successfully. In other words, you will capitalise on activities performed throughout the module to transfer it on a complete project of your choice.

The project represents one activity, assessed in a summative way.

Synchronous part

  • 4-5pm: Introducing Section 4
  • 5-6pm: Conference on Open Education in emergencies
  • 4-6pm: Proactive regulation with regard to activities related to Section 4

Asynchronous part

Activity 7

Learning outcome:

  • Synthesise and capitalise on previous activities to design an Open Education project
  • Leverage resources to design a project with efficiency

Detailed description:

The project is composed of five steps:

  1. Define the project, i.e. describe the resources; set objectives; specify target audience; design learning activities; choose learning environment; specify assessment
  2. Find relevant OER for your project, i.e. either re-using those identified during Activity 3 or new ones
  3. Script activities with Open educational practices, specifying the roles of the different stakeholders, again, you may reuse what you have produced in Activity 4
  4. Reflect and design evaluation criteria to create an Open badge
  5. Publish and share your project on an Open platform

Detailed information will follow in due time.
