    2. 2. Thanks For Your Participation So Far! Lots of posts from all over the world. Great recommendations. Really giving shape to OERu. http://scope.bccampus.ca/mod/forum/view.php?id=8953
    3. 3. 5 Things You Should Know http://wikieducator.org/images/7/7d/OERu.pdf
    4. 4. OER University (OERu) AIMS <ul><li>Will design and implement a parallel learning universe to provide free learning opportunities for all students worldwide with pathways to earn credible post-secondary credentials. </li></ul><ul><li>Offer courses and programs based solely on OER and open textbooks. </li></ul><ul><li>Design and implement scalable pedagogies appropriate for the OER university concept. </li></ul><ul><li>Will implement scalable systems of volunteer student support through community service learning approaches. </li></ul><ul><li>Coordinate assessment and credentialising services on a cost recovery basis for participating education institutions to ensure credible qualifications and corresponding course articulation among anchor partners. </li></ul>http://wikieducator.org/OER_university/Home
    5. 5. OERu Logic Model http://wikieducator.org/OER_university/About
    6. 6. OER Tertiary Network Anchor Partners <ul><li>Athabasca University (Canada) </li></ul><ul><li>Thompson Rivers University (Canada) </li></ul><ul><li>Empire State College (State University of New York) </li></ul><ul><li>University of Southern Queensland (Australia) </li></ul><ul><li>Unisa (University of South Africa) </li></ul><ul><li>Otago Polytechnic (New Zealand) </li></ul><ul><li>Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology (New Zealand) </li></ul>Australia, Canada, South Africa, New Zealand, and the USA
    7. 7. OERu Logic Model High Level http://wikieducator.org/OER_university/Logic_model
    8. 8. OERu Credential - Baseline Requirements <ul><li>The qualification must be on the books of the anchor partner organisation </li></ul><ul><li>In countries where there is a National Qualifications Framework (NQF), the OERu qualification must be registered with the respective NQF </li></ul><ul><li>The OER Tertiary Education network leading the implementation of the OERu will only accept organisations who are duly registered and legally entitled to operate within their national jurisdictions </li></ul>http://www.enic-naric.net
    9. 9. Non-Traditional Models <ul><li>Alternative ways of doing things </li></ul><ul><li>Redesign higher education? </li></ul><ul><li>Gina’s Dream http://scope.bccampus.ca/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=16608 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>An always-upgrading databank of knowledge/skills/attitudes defined for jobs in particular fields. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Detailed and transparent evaluation tools that learners can self-access and use. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>“ open learning objectives” and “open evaluation” within an OERu model - Asif </li></ul><ul><li>OERu could theoretically offer a learning credential superior to those offered by traditional universities </li></ul><ul><li>needs of &quot;informal” & &quot;Edupunk-like&quot; learning -- for example, P2PU, initiatives like the Saylor Foundation and many dimensions of the MOOC model. </li></ul>
    10. 10. Inaugural Credential Possibilities <ul><li>Diploma of Arts </li></ul><ul><ul><li>6 partners, 3 courses = 18 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Students select 8 from 18 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>gain a Diploma of Arts </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>cluster the 18 courses into (overlapping) sets of 8 the initial OER/courses could focus on such areas as nursing and education or business with several of the OER/courses possibly common to all three or at least two of such areas while also allowing for an Arts diploma. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Bachelor of General Studies </li></ul><ul><li>Bachelors of Education and Nursing </li></ul><ul><li>Associate of Science </li></ul><ul><li>Existing Examples: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>http://alison.com </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Free MBA classes online http://www.lsbf.org.uk/globalmba/globalmba.html </li></ul></ul>http://www.usq.edu.au/handbook/current/arts/DART.html
    11. 11. Common Recommendations <ul><li>Competency/national qualification frameworks </li></ul><ul><ul><li>master database of social functions with the detailed list of learnings required to work in job positions. Such a database would be outside & ABOVE the authority of the universities </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Prior Learning Assessment Recognition (PLAR) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>too expensive? Thompson Rivers University model? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Portfolios </li></ul><ul><li>Credit transfers & articulation agreements </li></ul>http://www.tru.ca/distance/services/plar-ol.html
    12. 12. OERu Financial Models <ul><li>Three-tiered funding model for OER being researched at the Educational Development Centre at Otago Polytechnic. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Open access to all learning materials for no fee. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Access to course facilitation for a limited fee for service. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Assessment and accreditation for a full fee. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Public government funding formula </li></ul><ul><ul><li>rather than providing one full-time equivalent grant for a student </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>package grant funding for services supplied </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>the OERu model with an assessment and credential service only could be provided for roughly 20% to 25% of the current cost of a full package </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>huge potential savings and efficiencies to be gained using the OERu model. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>possible to provide no-cost options for OER learners to acquire credentials because the revenue stream is covered by government grant (or other sources of funding). </li></ul></ul>
    13. 13. Next Steps <ul><li>Continue to participate in SCoPE seminar on Designing OERu Credentials through September 13 http://scope.bccampus.ca </li></ul><ul><li>Seminar is providing inputs to inaugural meeting of OERu founding anchor partners in Dunedin NZ on 9 & 10 November 2011 </li></ul><ul><li>Join the OER Tertiary Network </li></ul><ul><li>Provide feedback on the Commonwealth of Learning/UNESCO OER Guidelines for Higher Education Stakeholders before 21-Sep-2011 http://oerworkshop.weebly.com/guidelines-for-oer-in-higher-education.html </li></ul><ul><li>BCcampus Vancouver f2f/online OER event scheduled for 17-Oct-2011 </li></ul>
