Webinar Recording: ‘Open Guilds’ – what can they do for me?

The proliferation of free learning resources on the web and the increasing strength of the Open Education movement provide opportunities and challenges for both educators and the institutions that employ them. We need to find ways to embrace the potential of collaboration while respecting the rights of collaborators and co-creators.

Join this webinar to explore the idea of ‘Open Guilds’. These are networks of teachers/lecturers committed to creating and sharing open educational resources. An Open Guild in your curriculum area could provide a straightforward and mutually beneficial way of building up easily accessible collections of useful learning resources, and there could also be gains in terms of professional development and capacity building.Presented by Terry Loane and Teresa MacKinnon
