Library Dialogue | How can we open up our education at WUR?

March 5, 2024 @ 11:30 am BST

On 5 March, Wageningen University & Research (WUR) Library is organising a round-table discussion on Open Education. What’s WUR’s vision for Open Education? What are the practical issues that teachers run into when adopting open teaching and learning methods? And what infrastructure and solutions are available to open up our education at WUR? Your opinion is important! WUR teachers, staff and students are cordially invited to join the dialogue and share their experiences.

What is Open Education?

Open Education aims to enhance the access, inclusiveness and flexibility of education, often by using digital technologies and open licenses

The cornerstone of Open Education lies in Open Educational Resources (OER). These educational materials are openly licensed to allow everyone to freely use, adapt and share the resource. OER can include textbooks, lecture notes, videos, quizzes, and other learning materials. OER are both free of charge and free of legal barriers. Considering this, they reduce costs for students and enable teachers to adapt the materials to meet their specific students’ needs.

The Library Dialogue is taking place within the framework of the Open Education Week 4- 8 March 2024.


The Library Dialogue provides space for different perspectives and opinions on how we can open up our education at WUR. We’ll start with presentations by Nicolien Schmaal, manager of WUR’s Open Science and Education programme, and Sabien van Harten, Education Policy Officer Education.

Afterwards, we’ll break into small groups to discuss different aspects of Open Education, including:

  • Copyright considerations for (open) educational materials
  • Drivers and obstacles to the adoption of Open Educational Resources
  • Support and tooling for using Open Educational Resources
  • How to create Open Educational Resources
