Daily from Monday 27 - Friday 31 March, the Coffee Course is designed to allow participants to engage with topical issues in education through 15 minutes segments each day for one week. The blog posts are published each morning at 10.00 am (AEST), and will feature a single facet of the issue and the invitation to join a community of practitioners for asynchronous discussion.
This Coffee Course will ask practitioners to consider the role of openness in their own work and provide opportunities to re-evaluate (or re-visit) the value proposition of the university in a participatory and democratic society. It will do so by introducing the foundational ideas of open educational practice (OEP) and open educational resources (OER), how it has been used in Australia and internationally in higher education and explore opportunities for integration into day-to-day teaching and learning activities.
