11:00 – 11:25 Grasple Launch
TU Delft’s ambition to reuse and create open educational resources has been taken to the next level by its collaboration with social enterprise Grasple, an open practice platform with an open business model. This cooperation will drive the creation and distribution of open math exercises from both a content and a technical possibilities point of view.
On this day this cooperation will be officially launched with a short interview with Grasple CEO Pim Bellinga and TU Delft Director of Interfaculty Education Annoesjka Cabo, in which they will address the opportunities and challenges they see. Furthermore, a brief demo of the platform will be given. Grasple will also be showcased at the Open Education Best Practice Market.
11:30 – 12:30 Panel discussion: The Quality of Open Educational Resources
TU Delft stimulates and promotes Open Science & Open Education, and within that theme, we are now seeing an increase in the availability and use of Open Educational Resources. The increased use of these materials means, that it is important to consider their quality which is often seen as an issue, for example during the selection of existing material. How is this quality assessed, and by whom? Should there be criteria for the re-use of Educational Resources produced by other lecturers and universities, or criteria for TU Delft lecturers wishing to share their Educational Resources with the outside world? To what extent are Open Educational Resources different from more "traditional" learning materials?
There will be room for audience participation as well.
The panel consists of Prof. dr.ir. J. (Hans) Hellendoorn, Dr. C.D. (Calvin) Rans and Prof. dr.ir. Merle de Kreuk. The discussion with audience participation will be moderated by Dr. Michiel de Jong.
