What is open schooling?

Open learning and open schooling are broad terms which describe learning which is ‘open’ in terms of timing, location, teaching roles, instructional methods, modes of access, and any other factors related to learning processes. Most schools already do some level of open learning, through off site trips, on site visits and remote learning.

This paper accounts for the process of using Service Design methods to characterise the main features of open schooling and create a set of ‘user centred delivery templates’; a set of templates which can help any educator to structure an open schooling project or programme.
