The Use (Open Research) Data In Teaching project was initiated in 2017 by a group of people working in higher education and having experience and competences in teaching, active learning, information literacy, open educational resources, research data management, and scientific research. The objective of the project is to encourage and help teachers in higher education use open research data in their teaching. The motivation of the project is the importance we see in active learning and in open science, and the increasing focus dedicated to these two concepts, both on the institutional, national, and international level.

The partner institutions in the project are Radboud University, UiT The Arctic University of Norway, and University of Amsterdam/Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences. Project weeks have been organised in Tromsø, Norway (January-18) and Amsterdam/Nijmegen, Netherlands (May-18), with focus on developing structure and content, and interacting with researchers, library staff and decision makers. The next project week will be organised in the autumn 2018.
