Keynote: Tim Chen, From Home Education to Open Education: An Experiment in Higher Education

Session Description
Unbounded by the national curriculum, the number of home educated students in Taiwan has tripled in the past 5 years. Meanwhile, only a handful of higher education institutions(HEIs) are experimenting with opening up access, content, pedagogy and recognition of their education. How to open an experiment in Taiwan’s higher education? Can 20 years of non-school-based experimental (home) education help?
