Wikiwijs: policy objectives • stimulate development and use of OER – extend options for customized education – increase quality of education through more flexible and up-to-date learning materials • improve access to both open and ‘closed’ digital learning materials • support teachers in arranging their own learning materials and professionalization • increase teacher involvement in development and use of OER – Making the profession more attractive Pagina 4

Basic principles • maximum (free!) use of existing components of OUNL, Kennisnet and other publicly funded educational organizations • open standards and open source mandatory • all OER learning materials and materials for professionalization to be published under CC-BY or CC BY-SA – In the repository of Wikiwijs • professionalization of both teachers and management! • Research to measure effects on policy goals Pagina 5

Actions • Create portal / platform • Communicate on OER advantages • Involve stakeholders to create awareness on OER – Policy makers – School management – Teachers Pagina 6

Architecture search Wikiwijs Pagina 7

Assumption on quality • Assumption: teachers are the most capable to judge the quality of learning materials • Not have a treshold based on some standpoint of quality • Providing means to make quality visible Pagina 8

Quality measures • Rating by peers • Peer review • Quality mark organizations / groups • But most important: proficient teachers – Professionalization! Pagina 9

Quality mark Pagina 10
