OPEN-AE: CALL for contributions on Open Education Resources!

The consortium of the Open AE: Promote open source technologies in non-formal adult education project is now working on preparing the first output of the project, which is the OPEN-AE curriculum. This curriculum is being designed for e-facilitators working with unemployed adults needing upskilling or reskilling to get a job. The curriculum will focus on promoting open source tools and practices to e-facilitators to pass onto their target groups.

At this phase of the curriculum the consortium is collecting Open Education Resources (OERs) to be integrated into the curriculum.

The OPEN-AE curriculum will present a modular methodology which e-facilitators can take to gain better competences to teach Open Source curriculum to under-skilled unemployed adults. The toolkit will provide a repository of OERs that can be matched to meet the specific needs of e-facilitators in the field.

The consortium has conducted desk research and collected relevant OERs where the project will be piloted, namely in Belgium, Italy, Spain, and Switzerland. The curriculum and its respective toolkit will however be a useful resource for e-facilitators across Europe, this is why there is now an open call for all stakeholders to contribute relevant OERs. These OERs will be considered to be integrated into the toolkit and the curriculum.

Sharing your OER with the OPEN-AE curriculum/toolkit will help increase the reach of the OER or your project. The curriculum will also be mapped to the Digital Competence Framework for Educators (DigCompEdu) which is a scientifically sound framework describing what it means for educators to be digitally competent; it also provides a general reference frame to support the development of educator-specific digital competences in Europe.
