The Center for Open Education Research (COER) is an international research consortium, that was established in 2018 in order to increase international collaborative research projects, furthering innovation and understanding in the areas of open education, educational technology, lifelong learning and international education. COER will also offer a fully online Master of Technology-Enhanced Learning (MTEL) program, which addresses a market need for leadership and management in realizing digital transformation within educational institutions, connecting students with a faculty of leading and renowned scholars and researchers in the field of online, distance, and open education.
The Open University of Sri Lanka is offering the first Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) on Open Educational Resources (OER) and Open Educational Practices (OEP), available for practitioners/professionals from any field of study.
Registration is now open, until 19 October, 2018, at http://www.ou.ac.lk/apps/mooc/
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of COER member, valued colleague and treasured friend, Professor Colin Latchem. He was a preeminent Australian researcher, writer, consultant and teacher within the field of open and distance learning, and we had been eagerly looking forward to his keynote address at the Inaugural COER Symposium on October 1st this year. Prof. Dr. Som Naidu will present the address at the Symposium in honour of Colin's memory.
Rest in Peace.
