We invite you to join us at the OpenGame project’s national event for Ireland. This online event is for those interested in promoting open education and adopting open educational practices (e.g. using OERs in teaching, open textbooks, ‘non-disposable’ assessments etc.). More specifically, the event will explore how open educational practices can solve problems for educators they encounter in their everyday teaching practice. It will also discuss institutional capacity building for harnessing the potential of open education and open educational practices.
About the OpenGame project
The OpenGame project (Promoting Open Education through Gamification) facilitates the uptake of Open Education Resources (OERs) and Open Education Practices (OEPs) among educators in Higher Education through a gamified and situated learning experience. The online game, Catch the Open! is based on real life, open teaching approaches being used by educators in their teaching.
This engaging online game has been built up from a number of other valuable project outputs: an open educational practices competency framework; a handbook of successful open educational practices; and the entire OpenGame course curriculum and content.
