2018/2019 Application form for Candidates

The 2018-2019 OE4BW program will take place from 7th January to 5th July 2019. Candidates with concrete ideas for open e-learning courses aligned with SDG goals are invited to apply by 12 December 2018. Up to fifty (50)  candidates will be chosen to be guided on-line towards the implementation of their course.

Accepted proposals will be selected based on their compatibility with SDGs, social impact, the maturity of the idea, capacity and commitment of the author to make the idea come true.

Candidates will be matched with mentors according to the compatibility of the project proposal and mentor’s expertise. The candidates will have regular online meetings with their mentors. The candidate’s role will be to develop and implement an open e-learning module/course,  starting in January 2019  until the public presentation of project results in the scope of the Open Education for a Better World Festival organized in the Lanthieri Mansion in Vipava, Slovenia taking place from 1st to 5th July 2019.

The whole program is based on voluntary work, so we can not provide any financial compensation for developing and implementing an OER.
