University of Wollongong
The University of Wollongong is a leading Australian regional university with an enviable record in teaching and research, a strong commitment to improving the lives of people in regional Australia, and a proven track-record for using innovative technology in all aspects of our business.
The University of Wollongong is pleased to partner with OERu during a period of curriculum transformation, in which we will develop OERs and MOOCs to enhance student learning, increase access to education, and create uniquely placed graduates with an international perspective who can work locally, regionally and globally.
In the words of our Vice-Chancellor at the recent launch of our Open UOW Open Education initiatives:
“MOOCs are a huge opportunity for us to deliver on our strategic plan objectives around being a Digital University, about being ambitious, and of being in the top 1% of universities in the world. It's about being openly-connected, making sure we stay relevant to the future need of our students, and using our eLearning world as part of the driver towards that long-term goal of being a Digital University”.
