Re-thinking sustainable education systems in Iceland: The Net-University project
AbstractThe recent economic crisis in Iceland has raised issues of the sustainability of Icelandic Higher Education to new levels of importance. The Net-University Project was an EU Leonardo-funded initiative to focus on the transfer of innovation in continuing university education. The partners concentrated on how knowledge and experience about distributed and distance learning models could be transferred between the partner countries, and how such models can be integrated into the education system to better support higher education and life-long learning. There was a particular interest in the practical use of Open Educational Resources for course design, and the sharing of these course modules across university partners. Some good practice and lessons from OER use in course design are listed.
