Digital media in education and research is fundamentally changing use, production and sharing of knowledge. The Swiss Higher Education landscape needs a broad and differentiated discourse on Open Educational Resources (OER), which is in line with the national strategy of swissuniversities.

OER refers to educational resources, in particular teaching and learning materials in any form, which are free and accessible to all. OER may be used, reused and adapted without relevant restrictions. OER respect copyright, open use is usually regulated by CC licenses (Creative Commons). Free accesible knowledge resources can help expand teaching and learning at Institutions of Higher Education towards Open Educational Practice.

On January 28 & 29, 2019, the first conference to promote, raise awareness and develop further OER at Swiss universities in general, will take place in Lucerne.
