TU Delft Open Education framework
In January 2018, at the 176th Dies Natalis (foundation day) of the TU Delft the new strategic framework 2018-2024 was presented. The structure of the framework is based on two dimensions. The university’s core operations are divided into four operational areas: Students & Education, Research & Innovation, People & Community, and Campus & Services. These are developed along four major principles: Excellence, Impact, Engagement and Openness.
As a core principle of the new strategy framework, we strive to achieve openness in education. For education, the framework states:
We make Open Educational Resources part of TU Delft’s education policy by:
- Structurally supporting lecturers and students with the use of such means.
- Encouraging lecturers to publish their educational material under an open license.
- Making open education part of the basic teaching qualification programme and the evaluation criteria of courses.
- Replacing commercial textbooks by open resources in all BSc programmes as much as possible.
Open Textbook publishing will play a vital role in executing the TU Delft open education policy.
