Open Data, Open Education and eGovernment: Different Trends in Public Administration
Date Thursday, Dec 7 Time –
The domain of Public Administration is often seen as lagging behind in picking up on technology trends. However, many innovative approaches have been introduced in public administration already: data with relevance to the public are regularly published as “open data” and government and service processes are supported digitally within e-government initiatives. As one of the last key challenges, Open Education and Open Educational Resources (OER) are not yet widely introduced and used. This session will discuss strategies and best practices for introducing OER in public administration institutions. Join us to discuss ideas and develop scenarios in a (shortened) design thinking process to introduce OER.
