Die Idee der offenen Bildungsressourcen (OER) ist mittlerweile in der Hochschule verankert, deren faktische Nutzung jedoch gering. Untersuchungen konzentrieren sich meist auf das (fehlende) Bewusstsein für OER und identifizieren Hindernisse für deren Nutzung. Der Beitrag argumentiert, dass die Debatte von der Perspektive der OER-erfahrenen Lehrende...

The idea of Open Educational Resources (OER) is nowadays widespread in higher education. However, notwithstanding their supposed benefits, the actual adoption of OER in teaching remains low. Due to this absence, various studies have primarily focused on (the lack of) OER awareness among teachers and identified barriers to their use. This article ar...

The proliferation of Open Educational Resources (OER) constitutes an essential element for establishing education as a “public good” on the internet. A core objective of OER is to broaden access to educational material and improve the overall quality of teaching and learning. In this manner, OER contributes to the sustainable (re)use and (re)distri...

This contribution critically discusses the prospect of openness for Bildung in the digital age. The wave of openness has challenged certain foundations of education. One central concern is education as a public good with equality at its center. Prima facie, openness claims to boost Bildung as both concepts revolve around the idea of opening educati...

Article
Full-text available
For almost 20 years, Open Educational Resources (OER) are an integral part of the debate about the digitisation of education. However, the empirical landscape of OER research is vivid and largely obscure. This article reviews the state of international empirical research on OER to reveal trends and gaps and, in this manner, identify possible deside...
Chapter
The EU is perceived as an ambitious actor in environmental policy in general and climate policy in particular. Hence, most actors recognize the EU’s leadership role in the international system. This chapter analyzes the EU as an actor in the field of climate policy, with a specific focus on its external relations. The first section of this chapter...
Chapter
Monetary, financial, and fiscal policy in the European Union (EU) underwent fundamental transformations over the past half-century, including the introduction of the euro, the establishment of the Single Supervisory Mechanism (SSM), and the successive tightening of fiscal and budgetary rules for the Member States. What implications do these develop...
Chapter
Trade policy is one of the most integrated policy fields of the European Union’s (EU) external economic relations. By creating a customs union, the EU member states have largely delegated their trade and investment policy competence to the European level. Consequently, the EU can speak with a single voice in international trade fora. Nevertheless,...
Chapter
This final chapter evaluates European actorness in trade, finance, and climate policy. It discusses future challenges the European Union as a global actor has to face as well as the value of actorness studies for students and scholars of International Relations, International Political Economy, and European Integration.

Digital Storytelling (DS) is increasingly recognised as a pedagogical approach at all levels of education. As a combination of the ancient tradition of storytelling and the use of digital media, DS renders a compelling teaching practice to acquire 21 st-century skills such as global, digital, technology, and information literacy. A review of the li...

Open Educational Resources (OER) have become widespread, but constantly lack adoption. The various studies that address this lack predominantly focus on structural causes (e.g. lack of time, legal uncertainty) while omitting individual factors. However, the latter especially can yield insights into the 'black box' of individual drivers for OER enga...

Open Educational Resources (OER) sind ein prominenter Gegenstand der Bildungsdiskussion. OER wird das Potenzial zugeschrieben, die Entwicklung partizipativer und kollaborativer Lernszenarien zu ermöglichen und auf einer grundlegenderen Ebene offene Bildung und Bildungsgerechtigkeit zu fördern und zu unterstützen. Dennoch ist die Verbreitung von OER...

The concept of open educational resources (OER) is becoming increasingly prominent in education. However, research circles around defining OER, content and forms of OER, technological features of OER, and the importance of the issue or lack thereof. Vital aspects such as the notion of the adoption of OER by educational practitioners remain underdev...

It is still a matter of controversy whether E-Learning has in fact triggered a new educational paradigm. However, it is not overstated to claim that E-Learning nowadays is ubiquitous and has transformed our way of thinking about teaching and learning (Garrison 2011; Johnson and Brown 2017; Tibaná-Herrera et al. 2018). Since the first occurrence of...

Digital Learning: In the literature, there is quite a variety of definitions and conceptualizations of teaching and learning with the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) and the internet: E-Learning, Online-Learning, Blended Learning, and Mobile Learning – at first sight, all these notions seem to be more or less synonyms. But...

Massive open online courses (MOOCs) are one of the overarching topics of our times but have been subject to several controversial debates in recent years. Hitherto, the discussion has mainly focused either on some distinct success criteria for MOOCs, including technical features, enrolment numbers and dropout rates, or on the instructional dichotom...

The notion of virtual mobility has gained prominence not only in the field of distance education. Virtual mobility is entrenched in the idea to enable students to exchange and collaborate with teachers and fellow students from other countries by the means of the latest information and communication technologies (ICT). In this paper, we argue that e...

Higher Education (HE) is experiencing disruption from technologies, demographics, the globalising world and longer life expectancy. Historically Higher Education has had a legacy of being seen as the requirement for an educated ‘elite’, there has been a policy ambition set in various countries (including the UK) for it to become the expectation for...

In recent decades, a vast amount of literature has been published discussing the educational use of simulation games in higher education. One reason simulation games are regarded as superior to traditional teaching is that they encourage students to learn through interaction and collaboration. Simulation games can therefore be subsumed under Kolb's...

While the term 'climate change' is firmly anchored in the global discourse, its visibility is often vague and subliminal. Education's key task, therefore, is not only to provide knowledge on causes and impacts, but also to build a nexus between scientific knowledge and what is called 'lived experience of climate change' in this article. Over the co...

Despite the euphoria about MOOCs, a final evaluation of the educational value is still pending. In our paper, we question the recent research focus which tends to solely quantify educational success by referring to certain numbers of completion. We think it is promising to give more consideration to the subject of students’ individual learning succ...
