Open Education week 2013 – Recap

Our ‘Debate with the Dean’ marked the end of the second international Open Education Week, during which we organised several events on the topic, such as:

  • Student discussions

Together with some 50 students we debated the value of open education for the TU Delft, a theme that also inspired our discussion with the TU Delft Honours Students the week before.

  • Launch of Open.tudelft.nl

The kick-off for our Open Education week was the launch of open.tudelft.nl on Monday 11th of March, showcasing all open initiatives TU Delft has to offer in Education, Research and ICT.

  • OpenCourseWare for Innovative Weather Sensing

The launch of open.tudelft.nl was followed by the publication of a package of courses to support African universities in the design competition for a low-cost weather station.

  • Open Education event

On Wednesday the Dutch higher education sector gathered in Utrecht, to celebrate the publication of the Trendrapport on Open Educational Resources. The day was chaired by our Vice President of Education, Paul Rullman while Anka Mulder, secretary of the university, was one of the speakers at the Open Education Event

  • Presentations for TU Delft staff

Furthermore, we have been welcomed at several faculties to share the possibilities of Open Education with our TU Delft teaching staff. This is something we will continue in the coming year in order to spread the word on open education, inside and outside of our campus!

We’ve enjoyed all the positive interactions and reactions we had during the Open Education Week, and will certainly contribute to next year’s Open Education Week.
