The Open Education Studio is an invitation to change, a place where innovations in education can be shared, and where the dialogue can be enhanced.
There are many websites, newsletters and journals on innovation and education. For the last 15 years, P.A.U. Education has been at the forefront of the information and dialogue on elearning and open education issues. P.A.U. Education launched the elearningeuropa and openeducationeuropa portals for the European Commission. We created the elearning papers, a reference journal in the field that soon became one of the most relevant sources of information on innovative learning for both academics and non-academics.
But education is changing, and the need for conversation is growing. We all need a place to share our visions, practices and perspectives on the way education is changing. This is the meaning of the “studio”. It’s a space to spread out innovation in education.
The Open Education Studio is driven by thoughts and experiences from inspired practitioners. None can pretend to teach, or preach. All join the studio to share, listen, inspire and be inspired.
The Studio is an open place where teachers, educators, practitioners, entrepreneurs, publishers, industry or policymakers “speak freely and candidly” and tell the truth about their practices, ideas and desires, frustrations, expectations, and more.
Joining the Open Education Studio means directly cutting into old practices and conventions and making innovation available and accessible to all.
