Reflections on Open Educational Quality Initiative discussions


The Open Educational Quality Initiative’s (OPAL) workshop at UNESCO in Paris on 8th and 9th November offered a valuable opportunity to explore a range of issues relating to how we can build on Open Educational Resources to encourage Open Educational Practices.

Below are the mind maps I constructed from our discussions on the following themes (click on the image to get higher resolution and larger versions!). Thanks to everyone who contributed to shaping my thoughts in these ways.

What are the main opportunities offered by Open Educational Resources?


What are the key challenges for preventing the implementation of the OPAL vision?



Reflections on the OPAL model – does it capture the different aspects of OER practices?


How can we best contribute?

Thanks to everyone who put this interesting gathering together – especially Ulf and Gráinne. Everything can be followed up on the OPAL site and its Cloudworks environment.
