This presentation was part of e-learning forum, which was organised by the Subject Centre for Sociology, Anthropology and Politics in July 2010 t will provide a forum for presenting some of our recent project work around the sharing of electronic educational resources, and explore the processes, methods and practices of sharing and using e-learning materials and tools which engage our colleagues in the social sciences. The scope of the day will include presentations from the C-SAP Open Educational Resources project, findings from current C-SAP mini-project focused around e-learning, and a 'show and share' session in the afternoon offering an opportunity to disseminate examples of practice from across our disciplinary networks.
