Transcript of "C-SAP OER project information leaflet"

  1. 1. C-SAP OER project<br />Evaluating the Practice of Opening up Resources for Learning and Teaching in the Social Sciences<br />Project core team:<br />Darren Marsh<br />(Project Manager)<br />Anna Gruszczynska<br />(Research Assistant)<br />Richard Pountney<br />(Project Consultant)<br />Contact:<br />Darren Marsh<br />d.l.marsh@bham.ac.uk<br />Project overview<br />C-SAP project “Evaluating the Practice of Opening up Resources for Learning and Teaching<br />in the Social Sciences” is part of JISC/HEA funded Open Educational Resources Programme<br /> within the subject strand. The pilot project, running from April 2009 till April 2010, focuses on the<br /> processes of making ‘open’ a selection of learning materials by re-working them and depositing<br /> into a dedicated learning and teaching repository such as JISC-based platform, JORUMOpen. The<br />project has given us an opportunity to engage with the theme of OERs from a point of view informed<br />by social sciences critique. This engagement has led to fascinating collaboration between six project<br />partners from across C-SAP subject areas - anthropology, criminology, sociology and politics.<br />Project partners<br />6 academic partners from across C-SAP subject areas have contributed a total of 360 credits of <br />educational materials. These include a range of resources from mainly introductory modules, at<br />varying granular levels: modules, weekly notes and lecture slides, glossaries, reading lists,<br />assessment practices, syllabi, learning objects.<br /><ul><li>Dr Mª Àngels Trias i Valls - Regent’s College London [Anthropology]

  7. 7. C-SAP OER project<br />Evaluating the Practice of Opening up Resources for Learning and Teaching in the Social Sciences<br />What is happening at the moment?<br />Project partners are in the process of repurposing the modules into Open Educational Resources, with the<br />project team providing guidance on issues of copyright, IPR, accessibility, pedagogic frameworks and any<br />other relevant issues. In addition, each of the partners has chosen one of the modules to become part of a<br />case study which documents the process of “opening up” educational resources in a reflexive way. These<br />case studies, focusing on pedagogic practice, will be published as part of the project toolkit offering guidance<br />on overcoming obstacles related to releasing and sharing OERs. <br />When will the toolkit be released?<br />The toolkit as well as a website accompanying the project is due to be released by the end of April. <br />In the meantime, you can have a look at the screenshots of early versions of the toolkit:<br />Project website and toolkit Mapping tool<br />Where can I find more information about the project?  <br />http://www.c-sap.bham.ac.uk/subject_areas/elearning/oer/.<br />http://www.slideshare.net/CSAPOER<br />http://twubs.com/csapoer<br />Project core team:<br />Darren Marsh<br />(Project Manager)<br />Anna Gruszczynska<br />(Research Assistant)<br />Richard Pountney<br />(Project Consultant)<br />Contact:<br />Darren Marsh<br />d.l.marsh@bham.ac.uk<br />C-SAP (Subject Centre for Sociology, Anthropology and Politics)<br />Nuffield Learning Centre, <br />Edgbaston<br />University of Birmingham<br />B15 2TT<br />T:+44(0)121-414-7919<br />F:+44(0)121-414-7920<br />E: enquiries@c-sap.bham.ac.uk<br />
