Lilia Cheniti

Sousse University, ISITC H-Sousse
Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Head of Online Learning Department
I’m assistant professor of Computer Science at the University of Sousse, Tunisia, and a graduate of the University of Braunschweig in Germany where I read for a master’s degree in Computer Sciences. I’m a member of the PRINCE Research group at the University of Sousse and my PhD was realized in collaboration with the Semantic Web group at the Institute of Information Systems of the University of Hannover in Germany. I have great interest in open access in general and in open educational resources in particular. I am currently a researcher at the University of Sousse in Tunisia, and co author of four online courses. May research interest span a vast array of web based learning methodologies and in particular web-based assessment. For the past two years I have focused on MOOC and I am currently giving a MOOC for project-oriented design and specification alongside three other colleagues. The project, which is mainly addressed to computer sciences students, will be one of only two currently being developed in Tunisia and has been launched on 21th of September 2015 for a period of 5 week on FUN (France Université Numerique ) plateform.
Open resources are a fundamental component of these courses.
I am also attending this summit to enhance my academic credentials among the vibrant community of African and Arab computer scientists. Exposure to other experiences from around the world will help me update my course materials and offer my students new sets of learning resources that are available elsewhere. In this respect, CC Resources could offer me a very useful entry point to foster pedagogical innovation in my department, enhance the quality of materials and references, and develop links with academic centers of excellence beyond this country and region.
A culture of open resources is lacking in Tunisian universities. This is particularly true in my university, where I’m lecturer and Head of Online Learning Department. It is part of my terms of reference at the level of my department to foster a culture of open education. Right after attending CC Summit, I plan to organize a follow-up meeting with colleagues from faculty to share the results of the summit and discuss an action plan to promote integration of CC Resources into the curricula of the upcoming academic year.
