    Abstract

    ‘OpenMed: Opening up education in South Mediterranean (S-M) countries’ involves five higher education partners from Europe and nine from the S-M (Morocco, Palestine, Egypt and Jordan). The project is focused on the adoption of Open Educational Practices (OEP) within the context of higher education in the S-M region. This paper presents the research conducted during the initial stage of the project with the aim of informing the subsequent work packages, paying particular attention to the themes and key recommendations emerging from a series of case studies on Open Education initiatives and the views and advice gathered from various experts in the field. By reviewing relevant examples and identifying key trends, OpenMed aims to provide a reliable and evidence-based body of knowledge on OEP specifically generated to facilitate and encourage adoption of OEP in S-M universities.
