Developing the cascade framework

  1. 1. C-SAP OER2 cascade project reflexive partner task: Developing the cascadeframework schemaFor an overview of current approaches to developing the cascade framework, see a recentlypublished blog post which attempts to provide a summary, there is also a mindmap whichfunctions as the first attempt at developing a cascade schema on the basis of ourconversations at recent project meeting.Your task is to add to these discussions by developing a schema of your own by 15th March2011. There will be a follow-up to this task in the form of phone catch-up conversations withthe project team at the end of March.Feel free to use mindmaps, some good online tools are mindmeister or freemind, but goodold pen and paper will do as well, provided you scan the image and upload it to your pageon the project wiki. Also, feel free to experiment with Open University tools on conceptmapping, Compendium and Cohere. If you are unsure how to visually represent the cascade,feel free to use bullet points (my mind map is actually a set of revised bullet points actually).After you add your cascade schema to the wiki, if possible, please provide some annotationsso that it is meaningful for your colleagues. The annotations could be in the form of anaudio commentary - please provide a transcript if you decide to that! One option to considervoicethread; here’s an example of using voicethread in the context of the pilot project.You might find the following prompts useful when you map out your understanding of thecascade framework.Reflexive promptsTo start with, we have identified the following elements as relevant to the emerging cascadeframework (see also the mindmap): - Influences from the pilot phase - Being cascaded to/cascading - Student engagement - OER-related expertise - Contributions from partnersAre all of the above essential to your understanding of the emerging cascade framework?What else should be included?This content is published under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 2.0UK: England & Wales http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/ 1
  2. 2. As you will see from the overview of other cascade projects posted on our blog, there is anemphasis on adapting the cascade framework to the particular context of a specificinstitution/ discipline– are there any other contexts that should be taken into account?Given unlimited resources, which stakeholders should be involved in the development ofthe cascade framework – our focus is on student engagement but maybe we should we gobeyond just academic staff and students?What elements should the cascade framework include to make it sustainable once theprojects are over and the funding is removed?This content is published under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 2.0UK: England & Wales http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/ 2
