Open Education week

Welcome to the Maastricht University Open Education Week portal

The Open Education Week is a celebration of the global Open Education Movement. Its purpose is to raise awareness about open education and its impact on teaching and learning worldwide. Participation in all events and use of all resources are free and open to everyone.

If you are new to open education, we suggest that you start with “What is Open Education”.

Curious about open education at Maastricht University?

Several faculties are busy preparing open online (deficiency) courses for prospective students. As soon as they are ready for registration, we will announce this on this website. Last year the UM MOOC project has started, which focuses on developing a ‘small private online course’ or SPOC for all those interested in Problem-Based Learning (PBL). Very soon the project team will invite you to join a pilot with this UM SPOC which will be made available to the world in September.

Interested in what was presented in previous editions?

  • We updated this portal which goes back to 2012 
  • For impressions on several workshops in 2013 we refer to the news item in the menu on the right side
  • And to conclude: we were happy to meet so many colleagues willing to share their work and ideas on open education!
