ABSTRACT
MIT launched the global Open Educational Resources (OER) movement in 2001. The movement gained a major impetus in 2012 following the emergence of MOOCs: free online courses, often offered by leading research universities. Having taken their lead from the Open University of the Netherlands, Delft University of Technology and Leiden University, other higher education institutions in the Netherlands are now also taking steps to offer more open forms of education (Janssen, Jelgerhuis & Schuwer, 2014). We now have access to a wealth of research, experiences and best practices from around the world: the pioneering phase has come to an end.

This contribution explores the various concrete steps to be implemented by Dutch higher education institutions in order to facilitate the broad roll-out of open education, partly within the framework of the vision for the future defined by Minister Bussemaker in her 2015- 2025 strategic agenda for higher education. We will outline the key impediments to large-scale adoption of open education and define the measures needed to realise our vision for the future.
