|Title:||Open Learning in Higher Education: What are the dimensions of openness?|
|Description:||'Open' is fashionable. This is the era of generic terms such as 'open access', 'open source' and 'open license'. Furthermore, following the lead of the UK Open University, established in 1969, many educational institutions at all levels apply the designation 'open' to all or part of their offerings. What does the term signify? The session will explore the various dimensions of openness (e.g. admission criteria, geographic availability, accessible learning and curricular openness). It will also ask whether there are limits to educational openness and, if so, what they are."|
