    Project overview
    C-SAP project “Evaluating the Practice of Opening up Resources for Learning and Teaching
    in the Social Sciences” is part of JISC/HEA funded Open Educational Resources Programme
    within the subject strand. The pilot project, running from April 2009 till April 2010, focuses on the
    processes of making ‘open’ a selection of learning materials by re-working them and depositing
    into a dedicated learning and teaching repository such as JISC-based platform, JORUMOpen. The
    project has given us an opportunity to engage with the theme of OERs from a point of view informed
    by social sciences critique. This engagement has led to fascinating collaboration between six project
    partners from across C-SAP subject areas - anthropology, criminology, sociology and politics.
    Project partners
    6 academic partners from across C-SAP subject areas have contributed a total of 360 credits of
    educational materials. These include a range of resources from mainly introductory modules, at
    varying granular levels: modules, weekly notes and lecture slides, glossaries, reading lists,
    assessment practices, syllabi, learning objects.

  • 7. C-SAP OER project
    Evaluating the Practice of Opening up Resources for Learning and Teaching in the Social Sciences
    What is happening at the moment?
    Project partners are in the process of repurposing the modules into Open Educational Resources, with the
    project team providing guidance on issues of copyright, IPR, accessibility, pedagogic frameworks and any
    other relevant issues. In addition, each of the partners has chosen one of the modules to become part of a
    case study which documents the process of “opening up” educational resources in a reflexive way. These
    case studies, focusing on pedagogic practice, will be published as part of the project toolkit offering guidance
    on overcoming obstacles related to releasing and sharing OERs.
    When will the toolkit be released?
    The toolkit as well as a website accompanying the project is due to be released by the end of April.
    In the meantime, you can have a look at the screenshots of early versions of the toolkit:
