The OERup! project
The EU project OERup! was launched in September 2014. In the spirit of openness and sharing, its aim was to help adult education institutions successfully implement OER (Open Educational Resources) and OEPs (Open Educational Practices) in adult education in Europe in order to widen participation in Open Education. Within two years, five established European partners created and tested a training, following a preliminary need analysis in their regions.
The OERup! project addresses with its activities primarily decision makers and educational professionals of adult education as well as relevant policy makers. This online platform and a google+ community was established to share OEP experiences and to provide all practitioners with the training package and a guideline, as well as with a quality framework and the status quo analysis of European regions which was being developed throughout the project lifetime.
