I was at an interesting meeting in Edinburgh at the end of last week to participate in the Steering Group for a new initiative on open educational practices in Scotland. The project is a three-year initiative led by the Open University in Scotland, but includes representatives from other Scottish universities. It is intended to work across the whole Further and Higher Education sector in Scotland and try to harmonise approaches and resources for open education. The new web site at http://www.oepscotland.org will be developed and improved as the project picks up a head of steam (or is that a completely outdated metaphor?) 🙂 The idea is to help build a consistent national approach to the use, availability, and development of open resources for education in Scotland, and to project this work in Scotland onto a world stage. It is good to be involved in a project with such huge potential and vision.
