University of Edinburgh: Creating Open Culture

If you’re interested in supporting and developing institutional open practice, the latest OEPS Hub case studies are for you!

Focused on the University of Edinburgh, we interviewed Melissa Highton and Stuart Nicol earlier in the year to find out more about the background to Edinburgh’s approach to open education. From taking a look at the meaning of open within the Edinburgh context to developing joined up services and policies to help staff and students become more open in their practice, these case studies are a great insight into driving forward institutional change.
