16:00 CEST | The premiere of a brand new pan-European study “Remote education during the pandemic: lessons learned from the teachers' perspective”
Keynote speakers: Magda Biernat – Board Member of Centrum Cyfrowe Foundation Dr Maja Bogataj – Head of the Intellectual Property Institute Teresa Nobre – Vice-President of COMMUNIA Association
How have teachers been using Open Education Resources and what obstacles in the copyright area have they been facing during remote education? Centrum Cyfrowe Foundation and Communia Association have studied this topic in a brand new report “Remote education during the pandemic: lessons learned from the teachers’ perspective” that will premiere during the Forum.
This is the first study ever carried out to analyse teachers’ practices during the pandemic, which was run simultaneously in seven countries: Poland, Greece, Portugal, Slovenia, Czechia, Germany, and Italy. We asked teachers about the materials, tools, methods, obstacles, and problems that they encountered during remote education.
Now, with the new data collected within the study, we want to open a discussion about the ways the OE community should maintain further growth of OE projects in education.
