The National Forum is a leader in the area of open education, actively modelling and supporting open education principles, practices and policies in Irish higher education. We recognise that the development of open capabilities across the sector requires support for individual open practice as well as a commitment to openness at programme, institutional and national levels.
All National Forum resources are openly licensed using a Creative Commons licence (CC BY). Our open resources include a suite of professional development courses linked to the National Forum Professional Development Framework (see Open Courses). In addition, the National Forum requires that all resources arising from National Forum-funded projects be published openly; we actively support project teams in accomplishing this goal and coordinate the National Resource Hub where OER for teaching and learning can be searched and shared.
