Sana Harbi (UNESCO OER Chair at Université de Sousse, Tunisia) will be talking to Gemma Tombs (Coventry University, UK) on opportunities for the promotion of OER and Open Educational Practices in the Arab World with a special focus on the South Mediterranean region.
This conversation is part of the OpenMed project. The overarching goal of OpenMed is to raise awareness and facilitate the adoption of Open Educational Resources (OER) and Open Educational Practices (OEP) in the South Mediterranean region, with a particular focus on Egypt, Jordan, Morocco and Palestine. OpenMed fosters the role of universities as knowledge providers not only to their on-campus students but also beyond the walls of institutions, especially towards disadvantaged groups (e.g. low income peoples, disabled students, people living in rural areas, learners at risk of low achievement, refugees).
OpenMed is an international cooperation project cof-unded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
