Organizing higher education in changing society – open educational resources in animal welfare and ethics and work-based
Previous: Swedish University of Agricultural sciences
The general research aim is to better understand new ways of organizing higher education in changing society and particularly to involve the learner in the creation of knowledge. More specifically I want to analyse open educational practices in higher education for a sustainable, global and inclusive knowledge development in the subject of animal welfare. The thesis will focus on incentives for teachers, concerns with studentens as prosumers and contextual differences, and models for the design and quality assessment of OER.
