Mapping the impact of Open Education in the South-Mediterranean universities: the OpenMed project

The OpenMed project (www.openmedproject.eu), funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union, aimed at building capacities in Open Education [OE] in the South-Mediterranean, with a particular focus on higher education [HE] in Morocco, Palestine, Jordan and Egypt, which included the development of a series of skills, from Open-Licensing to policy making, curriculum design and adoption of Open Educational Practices [OEP]. A year after the course ended, and 6 months after project finished, an assessment was carried to map impact at individual, institutional and HE regional level.

Before starting the capacity building intervention, the learners were asked about their confidence in a series of OE criteria at the heart of the OpenMed course. Then, most of the participants, rated themselves mostly at mildly-confident with significant areas of slightly-confident or not confident at all. In the post-course evaluation survey, these questions were repeated, and the data showcased that their confidence levels have risen, as they portrayed themselves as confident or very-confident. A year after the course completion, the participants were assessed in the same criteria, to analyse whether if by putting learning into praxis, has made them more or less confident in OEP. The assessment compared the data obtained at the end of the course on impact at institutional level, with the data given by institutional leaders to track the adoption of the OpenMed Recommendations to University leaders and policymakers for opening up Higher Education in the South-Mediterranean.

The impact assessment used a methodology developed to assess the impact of online courses in open government and open data to build capacities for public servants, funded by the Inter American Development Bank and led by the Latin American Initiative for Open Data. This instrument was adopted by OpenMed to improve it towards ensuring common understanding of the value of the impact assessment.
