Go Open: A Beginner’s Guide to Open Education

The Go Open project is a collaborative initiative based in Dublin City University (DCU) comprising a team from the DCU Library, Open Education Unit and the Digital Learning Design Unit.

Led by Dr Orna Farrell, the project aims to support the DCU Community to engage with Open Educational Practices (OEPs) in their teaching, research and support activities. The Go Open Project is funded by the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education and DCU’s Teaching Enhancement Unit (TEU) through the SATLE 19 fund.

The project team has produced a number of open access resources published under creative commons licenses (CCL) designed for academics and professional support staff to begin engaging with OEPs and to take small steps towards going open!

Other OER/OEP initiatives

The NIDL is currently involved in two other major European-funded OER/OEP projects, including ENCORE and OpenGame. As part of the latter initiative, in 2020 the project team published this Handbook of Successful Open Teaching Practices which places an emphasis on how OER/OEP can be used to address some of the current challenges facing educators and students.
