O5.  Curriculum for work – based learning for CVET, VET and adult education using OER, innovative tools and sustainability models. Each partner institution develops on-line curriculum of 20 hours using OER (6 on-line courses, each maintaining at least 8 resources developed or adapted in their national language), ICT tools and innovative solutions on a chosen topic. 1/4 of curriculum is developed as OER (in the national and English languages) and exchanged among partner institution websites or learning environments. Curriculum is either a part of existing course/ module within the institution or a separate on-line course for CVET, VET or adult education. Each course will maintain 10 hours of theoretical material and 10 hours of practical learning assignments.


6 online courses are developed in English and national partner languages during OpenPROF project. Each course includes 20 hours of learning and OER that were created and adapted by the course authors. All courses are available here.

Based on the experience of professional collaboration in OpenPROF project the following ideas have been raised:

Requirements for teachers for collaboration in OpenPROF

  • Digital competence
  • Openness for idea sharing, critics and learning
  • Benevolent attitude towards collaboration and innovations

OpenPROF collaboration types

  • Collaboration of teachers with IT people for creation of OER
  • Adaptation or reuse of created OER
  • Translations of created English courses (with created and adapted OER) to national languages

Challenges for teachers creating and adapting OER

  • Tools to be used for OER creation
  • Tools to publish OER
  • Requirements for OER editable version
  • How much the OER should be adapted to become a new OER?
  • How open we are – should the OER be open for commercial use?
