Dear CIDER Member,

We invite you to an upcoming session in the 2017-18 CIDER Sessions series on February 7, 2018. This free, online session will feature Fabio Nascimbeni and Daniel Burgos of Universidad Internacional de la Rioja (UNIR), Spain.

Title: The Open Educators Factory Project: In Search for the Open Educator

The Open Educators Factory (OEF) project stems from the assumption that true progress in terms of openness in higher education (as well as in other educational sectors) requires a major cultural change in the mindset of all stakeholders from public policy makers to institutional leaders, to teachers and researchers, to students and parents.

The aim of the Open Educators Factory project is to explore how to transform university teachers from “agents of resistance” into “agents of change” for openness in education. This presentation will discuss results based on data collected from more than 400 HE teachers.

When: Wednesday, February 7, 2018 – 11am to 12noon Mountain Time (Canada)
