This year’s Open Education Policy Forum has revolved around the results of a new pan-European study by Centrum Cyfrowe. We focused on the usage of GLAM educational digital resources, interactive materials, and online digitised collections by teachers and educators.

Post-Forum audiovisual materials:

📺 Watch the full video of the first day of the „Open Education Policy Forum 2022”.

🎧 Hear the podcast about „Cultural Heritage Data as Open Knowledge”.

📒 Read and download the full report of „Open GLAM and education. Teacher’s and educator’s perspective on digital resources”.

More and more digital cultural heritage collections coming from the cultural heritage sector are made open and available for educational reuse.

These will be the vital questions during the 2022 Open Education Policy Forum.

The Forum’s virtual space is open to practitioners, activists and policymakers from all over the globe eager to share their experiences and take part in the discussion on composing future policies supporting development of the open movement. We want to use the Forum as an opportunity to exchange knowledge, make connections and bring together the Open Education and Open Culture communities discuss the best way forward.

The Forum is a digital-only conference. Participation in all events will be available via the Zoom app.

All events are free of charge.

The conference will be held in English.

Open GLAM & education report

Study “Open GLAM & education. Teachers’ and educator’s perspective on digital culture resources” is focused on the use of educational digital resources (e.g. lesson plans, learning scenarios, tutorials), educational interactive materials (e.g. games, quizzes, virtual tours) and online digitised collections (e.g. image, video, sound) developed by cultural heritage institutions such as galleries, libraries, archives and museums (GLAM).

The study is conducted by Centrum Cyfrowe in partnership with Europeana and EuroClio. The project is planned to span 6 months, starting in April 2022 and ending in September 2022.
