Vytautas Magnus University team implemented Exploitation workshop for the members of Lithuanian Association of Distance and E. Learning (LieDM association). LieDM association unites Lithuanian science, study, and education institutions which implement distance teaching and learning (association unites 40 educational institutions at the moment).
Open educational ideas approach to the workshop was chosen, (e)Vet2edu course was presented together with OER ideas, implementation and benefits for educational organization. Participants of the workshop showed the intention to integrate the course/ some parts of the course into educational offer of their institutions.
On the 21st of February, 2014 Vytautas Magnus University team held the first exploitation workshop, which was integrated to the conference “Studies in Modern Society 2014″. Open Educational Resources approach was used and this could be mentioned as a positive aspect, because this topic is relevant for educators and attracted a lot of participants of the conference to come to the project workshop section. The course itself is OER, so OER idea together with the course was promoted. It also leaded to the discussion how teachers can use OER in their educational practice. Feedback from participants showed that teachers need more information on what are OER, OER benefits, CC licenses, under what terms they can use products with CC licenses. Continue reading
