Project deliverable Open Access
In the 21st century, education has been inclined to more phenomenon- or topic-based learning since
students are urged to acquire sufficient skills to cope with the uncertain future and tackle social, economic,
and environmental challenges. While traditional subject-based teaching plays an important role in the early
stage of education, universities have been trying to offer more student-centred learning projects in which
students can learn the phenomena and address real-world challenges with peers. In such a context, the
INOS project consortium recommends HEIs integrate OS/CS concepts and activities into learning and
teaching when designing a curriculum to fulfil future needs.
Therefore, this state-of-the-art report considers how HEIs can integrate OS/CS into their curricula to design
student-centred learning activities. In the first chapter, we review related literature and publications to
overview the OS concept and how higher education institutions (HEIs), including academic libraries,
integrate it into their operation. We also see the direction of future education; what elements are expected
in European universities. From these points, HEIs’ roles in OS/CS facilitation and future educational visions,
we consider the practical implementation of OS/CS activities into their curricula.
