Since 2012, the OERcamp has been the meeting place for the German-speaking community around Open Educational Resources (OER) and digital, open, contemporary education. At OERcamps, different actors work and learn from and with each other, consciously going beyond the boundaries of educational areas and subjects and looking at the subject area of OER and open education from pedagogical-didactic, legal, organizational, technical and other perspectives.

KNOER and its members are also represented at OERCamp 2024 in various formats:

In the workshop “Artificial Intelligence and Open Educational Resources in University Teaching” PD Dr. Markus Deimann ( and Daniel Diekmann ( discuss the implications of artificial intelligence for open educational resources. This is about the opportunities and potential of AI for OER as well as the associated fields of action and challenges.

The workshop “Open Educational Practices (OEP) from the perspective of the OER repositories of the federal states” discusses what requirements must be placed on OER repositories for a successful OEP offering. This is about offering practice, options and the expectations of the user base. The workshop is offered by the OER Repository Baden-Württemberg (ZOERR) and the Virtual Campus Rhineland-Palatinate (VCRP). Verena Russlies (ZOERR), Konrad Faber (VCRP), Noreen Krause (twillo) and Paulina Rinne (HessenHub) are involved.

Another workshop – moderated by Silvia Czerwinski (twillo, TIB) and Yulia Loose (twillo, ELAN e.v.) – will be about the most important steps to an OER policy and what happens afterwards. The OER policy kit is used to discuss how stumbling blocks in the creation process can be overcome and what measures can be taken after publication.

Noreen Krause (twillo) is also involved in the newbie session “Introduction to the Barcamp method”.
