Yesterday and today, the Include conference takes place at Karlstad University. I have the opportunity to talk about open education as an opportunity for social inclusion. In my presentation, I will first very quickly go through what open education is, its roots and what open movements it is related to. Secondly, I will highlight some examples of how it is implemented in Sweden and last year’s regulatory change in the Swedish Higher Education Ordinance. I will finish off by showing some use cases and inititatives of how open education can contribute to a higher degree of social exclusion.
Here are some links to the examples I will highlight and below them you can find my slides:
