Updated: 20 days ago
Deadline: today

University of Groningen Library (UB)

The Open Science project team and the Education Support department of the University of Groningen Library are looking for a candidate to assist with the implementation of the Open Education pillar within the Open Science programme of the University Groningen (UG).

The Open Education pillar’s aim is to encourage and support teachers in adopting and adapting Open Educational Resources (OER). In line with Open Science principles, OER permits no-cost access, use, adaptation and redistribution by others with limited or no restrictions. Open Education also enables educators to reuse and create innovative and learner-centered materials, supports lifelong learning and teacher/student co-creation, and helps keep education accessible and affordable for students. OER is in line with the Dutch Ministry of Education's mission & vision to make teaching/learning materials as open as possible over the coming 5 years, the “Versnellingsplan Onderwijsinnovatie met ICT” (specifically the Zone “Towards digital (open) educational resources”), the UNESCO Recommendation on OER, and the UNESCO guidelines for open skills/competences.
