Dear Erasmus+ national leads,
I write to you on the advice of the EAC B4 Coordination Team.I am a project lead for the European Network for Catalysing Open Resources in Education (https://encoreproject.eu/). ENCORE+ is an Erasmus+ funded Knowledge Alliance working to improve the uptake and use of open educational resources (OER) in line with the strategic priorities of the European Commission and the UNESCO declaration on OER (https://www.unesco.org/en/legal-affairs/recommendation-open-educational-resources-oer).
I'm writing to ask for your co-operation in sharing a survey on innovation with and through OER.
We are keen to collect examples of OER use in Europe and see a great opportunity to promote and disseminate the work of fellow Erasmus+ grantees working in this area. We would also encourage anyone working with OER to join ENCORE+.
We are going to produce a collection of short case studies and showcase examples of OER implementation to a wide audience. We want to show strong examples from Europe which show the kinds of successes that are resulting from EU funding programmes.
I would be grateful if you would consider sharing the call with your stakeholder working in open education or related communities (e.g. MOOCs, open educational practices, open science, open data, open access).
You can complete the survey via https://openuniversity.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/encore-oer-innovation.
There's also a blog post with a bit more background at https://encoreproject.eu/2022/09/21/encore-oer-innovation-survey/.
The survey is open until 30th November 2022.
Many thanks for any help you are able to provide in sharing this survey with relevant parties in your networks. Please do get in touch if you have any questions!
