On the 15th of May the OEPass team met for the fifth consortium meeting in Budapest, hosted by
our partner BME.
In addition to the discussion about which further steps are to be taken within the outputs, the upcoming National Multiplier Events were the focus of this meeting. Each partner presented their plans and the time frame. A link to other conferences or lectures was considered advantageous in order to disseminate the project more widely.
Furthermore, the Learning Passport could be discussed in its final stages and, following a further review of the partners, is expected to be completed soon. While this intellectual output was technically completed, and other 3 were well under way, the last of the OEPass outputs, was just about to start. In this work package we will look at the future of open education, by considering a set of scenarios to identify important key driving forces (e. g. economic growth, legislative environment, technology diffusion) thought to be important to the future of credentialisation. Our aim is to explore and represent different sets of future challenges and opportunities for open education in Europe.
The evening before, we met with the partners from our sister project MicroHE. Beside enjoying delicious, local typical food, the opportunity was used to exchange information about the progress in both projects. After such long acquaintance with our MicroHE colleagues, of course some more social conversations were also on the menu.
We would like to thank again our host BME for the great organisation and all partners for this very productive consortium meeting. Have a safe trip home!
