Fostering Inclusive Education through Open Educational Practices

March 4, 2024 @ 4:30 am - 5:30 am BST

There is a widespread consensus that open education encompasses both Open Educational Resources (OER) and Open Educational Practices (OEP), with the understanding that sharing learning is crucial. According to the Cape Town Open Education Declaration (2007) “…open education movement combines the established tradition of sharing good ideas with fellow educators and the collaborative, interactive culture of the Internet. It is built on the belief that everyone should be free to use, customize, improve and redistribute educational resources without constraint.”.

To realise these freedoms, we must consider open educational practices from a social justice perspective. Questions arise:

  • Can open education promote inclusivity and diversity?
  • What guidance does Open Education offer our higher education community?
  • And what impact does adopting Open Educational Practices have on student learning experiences and teaching practices?

To address these questions and delve into deeper discussion, we will kick off UTS 2024 Open Education Week with a panel discussion event to shed light on Fostering inclusive education through Open Educational Practices. On this panel, we welcome Associate Professor Glenda Cox, UNESCO Chair on Open Education and Social Justice, University of Cape Town (South Africa) and Yasser Tamer, The American University in Cairo (Egypt). Glenda and Yasser will share their insights and experiences to address this topic.
