Open Courseware 2014 Conference
I am in lovely Ljubljana, capital of the small country of Slovenia, for the 2014 Open Coursware Global Conference. The development of open edcational resources is here to stay and it is interesting to hear and see how various universities have implemented the vision of openess!
The conference kicked off with a top-down view as seen by die European Commission and the Slovenian government. It all starts with awareness and especially with awareness of the benefits.
Must say, with some sadness, that medicine is lagging behind the mainstream STEM fields. Most certainly, the M is for mathematics and not medicine. Looking forward, though, to a talk about the use of the flipped classroom from the Taipei Medical University. Perhaps I’ll corner them for some collaborative research, since my classes are all flipped.
