The ministry of education is excited that the Open Education Global Conference 2018 will be held in the Netherlands.
Juriaan van Kan, policy advisor for open education in the Netherlands, believes that open education supports the ministry’s mission to ensure a knowledgeable, skilled and cultured country. He also sees the Open Education Global Conference as a perfect opportunity for Dutch education to share the experiences of Dutch universities and learn from the global community to accelerate the adoption of open education.
The former Minister of Education, Jet Bussemaker, received the 2017 Open Education Leadership Award of Excellence for her work in open education creating a structural granting programme supporting bottom-up initiatives for universities.
The Dutch Ministry of education is pleased to endorse the conference and highly recommends everyone interested in open education to attend this conference in April 2018 in Delft.
