Issue Date: 13-Mar-2015
Abstract: The Open Education movement is growing and gaining importance within the higher education landscape in many developing and developed nations. Unfortunately, this does not seem the case in Australia, as there is still a limited number of Open Education initiatives and programs at higher education levels compared with other developed countries such as Canada, the US, the UK and some other European countries. This presentation will explore some of the challenges and opportunities of adopting Open Education, particularly open educational resources and open educational practices in Australia. It will also report on some of the existing Open Education initiatives in Australia, including government funding and programs, along with institutional initiatives. Finally, some of the research taking place currently in Australia and at the University of Tasmania will be presented and discussed.
