Peer Working Group on Quality for European OER Repositories
ENCORE+ aims at developing a new idea for improved quality within the European OER Ecosystem of the Future.
To this purpose, we organized a four-part workshop series within our Quality Circle, focusing especially on Quality on OER Repositories. A few weeks ago, the first meeting of this peer working group took place. Read more about the results of our work here!
We at NextEducation Team and partners stand against the recent attacks suffered in Ukraine by Russian military troops. As an international research group we are fully aligned with the European values of freedom, peace and solidarity.
In consequence, we condemn the cruel and unjustifiable war that’s currently ongoing in Ukrainian territory.

We extend our heartfelt support, solidarity and recognition to all its education institutions, educators, and students inside and outside Ukraine. We condemn the unprovoked, illegal, and immoral attack upon the nation and peoples of Ukraine.
