About the event
This talk will consider the opportunities and challenges presented by OER. Drawing on recent UK experiences of co-managing the national OER project and also the current responsibility of leading an institutional drive for OERs at the University of Tasmania, this session explores:
- defining OERs
- the benefits of OERs for individual staff, students, subjects and institutions
- the areas to consider in relation to necessary supportive infrastructure at institutional levels
- contrasting perspectives on how best to address cultural change
- sources of support and collaboration opportunities.
The approach will be based on experience and policy interventions and does not assume or require detailed technical or copyright knowledge.
Some of the presentation will be recorded for people who cannot make the event and access to the recorded session will be available on the National Centres for Teaching and Learning's website.
This event is supported by Ako Aotearoa.
