OPAL Open Educational Practice dimensions
OEP dimensions related to the OPAL project
Cloudscape created by:
26 April 2010
This cloudscape has been set up as a space for the Open Educational Practice (OEP) dimensions that have been gather as part of the OPAL project. The OEP dimensions were derived from a set of OER case studies that were collated as part of Work Package 3 Deliverable D3.1 'Scope of desk research & case study identification',
A cloud has been set up for each of the eight OEP dimensions. Please feel free to comment on any of the indivudual OEP dimensions in the relevant clouds. This might include points of clarification or accuracy or more general reflections on the dimension. If you wish to provide more general comments on the dimensions please use the discussion cloud.
The eight Open Educational Practices are: :
- Strategies and policies
- Quality Assurance models
- Partnership models
- Tools and tool practices
- Skills development and support
- Business models/sustainability strategies
- Barriers and success factors
This cloudscape has been set up as a space to discuss either the full set of dimensions, or each of the indiviudal dimensions, which have been added as separate clouds.
