On 09 March from 3-4 pm there was an online session in English on the topic

OER in Higher Education in Germany – Current Developments and Good Practices of Cooperation.

The OER cooperation network “KNOER” illustrated the status quo of open educational materials in the German higher education sector. A short presentation illustrates current developments in the context of OER in the German higher education context (e.g. infrastructures, initiatives, actors) at the national level as well as at the level of individual federal states.

A special focus was on the OER cooperation network “KNOER”. In this network, several German federal states work together on the topic of OER in higher education: They coordinate their OER-promoting digital learning infrastructures and services, use synergy effects and advance the topic of OER in the German higher education context. Within the framework of KNOER, central OER-relevant topics such as OER quality, OER policies or OER infrastructures are dealt with in topic-based working groups across the federal states.

After the presentation, all participants were invited to ask questions, share experiences and contribute to the discussion.
