Instruction Design for e-Content Development

  1. 1. Reflections on OER Practices: UKperspectiveKyriaki Anagnostopoulou, Head of e-LearningUniversity of Bath
  2. 2. Incentives for OER development• Significant government funding available internationally • USA: $2 billion to create OER resources in community colleges (2011) (http://creativecommons.org/weblog/entry/26100) • UK: recommended investment of £5 million per year for 5 years (2011) (http://www.hefce.ac.uk/pubs/year/2011/201101/)• Funding body requirements • JISC, HEA and others• SCORE: support and capacity building (2009-12)
  3. 3. Reasons to engage in OER development• Improving access to learning materials and opportunities• Marketing, brand extension and improving public relations• Improving effectiveness and achieving economies of scale
  4. 4. The University of Bath’s experience• We create lots of content (lecture capture, Moodle courses, etc,) only small percentage is OER• OSTRICH ( JISC funded) – collaborative, 1 year project • Universities of Leicester, Bath and Derby • Workflow model and processes • http://ostrich.bath.ac.uk/• Disciplinary Thinking (HEA and JISC funded)• Departmental based projects
  5. 5. CORRE model
  6. 6. DORRE model
  7. 7. ReflectionsEngaging in OER development is… …a highly cultural experience• Identity and pedagogy (content and learning design of resources).• Language and semantics• Organisational structures and relationships (home of resources, assumptions, parent-child relationship)
  8. 8. ReflectionsEngaging in OER development is… …a balancing act• Open Vs commercial educational offerings (what/how you release, who)• Centralised Vs decentralised models for development• Core business Vs additional work (workload, incentives)• Top-down Vs bottom-up engagement• Funding Vs Timing/readiness
  9. 9. ReflectionsEngaging in OER development is… …an educational experience• Highlighted issues with current practice, misconceptions, gaps• IPR and copyright issues• Collaborative learning experience• Capacity building = sustainability
  10. 10. Reflections on Impact• Initiated processes, built capacity internally, overcome learning curves • Increase in support resources (copyright, lecture capture, etc) and ‘contracts’ • Development of expertise (i.e. Drupal, copyright licenses) • Awareness raising – potential marketing tool/’taster sessions’ for module choices
  11. 11. Challenges for institutions• Intellectual property and copyright• Sustainability of OER initiatives • New business models emerging • ‘Conversion’ model • ‘Segmentation’ model • ‘Contributor-pay’ model and others• Discoverability and quality of resources
