TIGER collects, develops and shares reusable, customisable Open Educational Resources (OERs) designed for Interprofessional Education (IPE) in Health and Social Care between the three institutions, academics, their existing communities of practice, employers and the wider community.

Student views The repository ‘ easy to navigate ’, ‘ user-friendly ’, ‘ attractive ’, ‘ flexible ’, ‘ visually very appealing ’, ‘ clear and easy to follow ’, ‘ visual aids ’, ‘ responds well to different learning needs ’ The OERs informative ’, ‘ very easy to use , follow and understand ’, ‘ well categorised ’, ‘ nicely divided up ’, ‘ well structured , organised , and presented ’ Potential benefits The resources are useful for both learning and work : Before : additional readings before seminars After : refreshing memory, enhancement, reflection, assignment, revision In practice : self-directed learning, professional development, sharing practice with health professionals internationally “ It’s good resource, much better than the handbook .” “ Overall, I feel the site with its sections gives more structure to the IPE Strand One event .” Criticisms The purpose of the repository and resources could be explained further. More information about the topics/types of the resources and more guidance on how to use them. Organising the resources under the ‘4-level’ theoretical framework (on the TIGER homepage) is found confusing.
