WHAT IS NEW
I. RECOMMENDED ARTICLE 

Fabio Nascimbeni (CEST Collaborator) and Daniel Burgos (Vice-chancellor for Transparency and Technology and UNESCO Chair on e-Learning at the Universidad Internacional de la Rioja - UNIR) wrote an article that exploits the changing process that university professors must go through to become fluent in Open Education approaches.

Based on the literature review and on interviews with a series of specialists in the field of Open Educational Resources and Open Education, the article presents an original definition of “Open Educator” that considers all the components of a professor’s work: learning design, resources and pedagogical approaches, and methods for evaluating the professor’s activities.

The whole text is available in html, PDF, MP3, and EPUB formats in several languages.

II. “OPEN EDUCATORS FACTORY (OEF)” PLATFORM 

Based on the work presented in Fabio Nascimbeni and Daniel Burgos’s paper, the Universidad Internacional de la Rioja has produced a platform called Open Educators Factory (OEF), an open tool that allows university educators to self-assess their competences and levels of development in terms of Open Education and provides some guidelines to further adopt openness in all dimensions of their activities.

Apart from being a self-assessment and development tool for individual teachers, the platform has been conceived as a tool for university leaders to check the level of openness capacity of their staff, understanding who the leading faculty are in terms for open approaches in each specific area.

If you are a professor or holds a leading position at a university and wants to know the platform, just create your login and password and browse the site.


III. THE USE OF A SIMULATOR IN THE CLASSROOM 

Based on a comparison with Bloom’s taxonomy and the use of a simulator in an engineering classroom, the researcher tried to verify whether the issue difficulty estimated by Bloom was the same perceived by the students, and whether the use of a simulator would help with the identified failure points. The work results showed that this is possible.

The project conducted by Professor Rodrigo Filev of the University Center FEI and CEST´s Collaborator will be presented at the 13th International Conference on Engineering Education (EDUCATION ’17).
