Event Description

Full Description:
This event will introduce participants to some of the key features of open content in higher education. Open educational resources have been defined as teaching and learning materials which are available for everyone to use with the goals of utilising web technologies to share freely, improve access to wide groups of stakeholders, prevent duplication, promote economic efficiencies and avoid restrictive copyright practices (Jisc, 2016). Open educational resources extend from small individual learning assets through to large Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), as well as encompassing open textbooks and student generated content.

The invited panel members will provide you with the opportunity to learn about the different dimensions of open content from the perspectives of policy and practice. The issues covered will introduce participants to the characteristics of open content, provide insights into the creation and management of OERs, consider the legal requirements of open licensing and outline the resources and networks available to academic and professional staff. The discussion will appeal to those who want to know how open content can support student learning outcomes, as well as those who have already explored the pedagogical opportunities and can share their experiences.
