Open Education Week 2019

25. 2. 2019.

University of Zagreb, University Computing Centre (SRCE), Croatian Employers' Association and Croatian National Coalition for Digital Skills and Jobs are joining this year’s Open Education Week by organising the panel discussion titled “How does open informal education affect the development of digital skills of employees and citizens?“ (CRO). The panel will be held on Thursday, March 7, 2019 at 11 am at SRCE.

The aim of the event is to discuss the topic of informal education and digital skills development and to look at the situation in Croatia, i.e. to try to answer the questions whether our education system provides education that enables the acquisition of digital skills, how to encourage and how to organize professional training and training of workers, and how Croatia is prepared for recognition of acquired knowledge and skills through informal education. At the beginning of the panel, the Croatian National Coalition for Digital Skills and Jobs, which was established at the end of 2018, will be presented. The Croatian Coalition is one of the 23 coalitions operating within the Pan European Coalition for Digital Skills and Jobs. These National Coalitions are aimed at improving the digital skills of citizens and preparing them for the ongoing digital transformation of our economy and society.

Open Education Week is a global initiative that raises awareness about the Open Education Movement and its impact on teaching and learning worldwide. In 2019, the OE Week takes place from March 4th to 8th.
