  • National Partnership 100% Engagement (Ireland is small!). Buy in from all HE institutions – unusal situation, partially becauise of approach we’ve takeN &amp; also beacuse country is small All of Irish Public-Sector HE 6 Universities, 14 Institutes of Technology Rapid Change Technology (repos. &amp; portal) Licensing Issues (CCLearn) Stakeholder Demands (community of users) Socialisation (increasing use of resources within social networking for added value and context). Mahara. Budgets being slashed (all taking place against a backdrop of challenging times) Diverse Stakeholders New clients appearing (not just the staff of Irish HE but now other prof. And training bodies are approaching us to use and adapt our approach / modus operandi / platform) All under pinned by COP model Pilot that has now moved to full service (2 nd year). Only example of a shared service that is common across all HEIn Ireland – v. Attractive to govt in this economic straightened times so hopefull that govt, will cont to fund the service. Has an annual budget of 1million euros – which is Irish context is quite substantial.
  • How to support this &amp; what does it entail… Open Educational resources + support networks (Community support) Need a place where resources can be shared &amp; support sharing area, training to nurture, exemplars Need to support &amp; exercise existing networks Support Networks A place to share Training to Nurture Exemplars The NDLR Service Model Bottom up – top down approach – user centric. Embedded into all T &amp; L units. LIPs, LInCs, SMART CoPs NDLR Board Communities of Practice – the NDLR engines Social Networks Individual Learning Innovation Projects Cross-Institutional Learning Innovation Projects QA is done by CoPs Support individual, group and  community HE sector staff in the sharing of digital learning resources and associated teaching practices Provide access to storage, search and retrieval facilities for shared digital learning resources Promote sharing of technology enhanced teaching expertise and digital resources across HE sector via open events and training, Support open access digital rights management of teaching resources OER ccLearn Portal to enable support sharing of digital resources and collaboration in associated teaching practices in different subject areas A repository for storage, annotation and sharing of digital teaching resources Support for the development of digital learning resources and collaboration within and across different subject communities Events (training, collaborative meetings, workshops,) to encourage development, usage and sharing of digital resources and associated teaching expertise NDLR sharing and collaboration is pre-competitive i.e. NDLR is not focused on sharing eLearning courses but rather individual topic related digital materials e.g. questions &amp; solutions, simulations, explanations, topic tutorials, graphics etc .
  • CB - Set scene For the purposes of this workshop, What do we mean by content, tools &amp; impl. Resources… “’ resources’ are not limited to content- comprise three areas, these are (OECD, 2007): from “ Giving Knowledge for Free: The Emergence of Open Educational Resources” OECD, 2007, http://tinyurl.com/62hjx6 Quoted on p4 http://wiki.cetis.ac.uk/images/0/0b/OER_Briefing_Paper.pdf Open Educational Resources – Opportunities and Challenges for Higher Education, Li Yuan; Sheila MacNeill; Wilbert Kraan, JISC CETIS
  • Protective attitudes are disappearing The “Value Myth” is being dispelled Benefits of sharing outweigh the costs Sharing via CC is gaining academic currency Institutions are lagging behind individuals Social networks protect themselves The contributors are the “Librarians” Metadata needs to be lightweight but effective Federated Access Control Light-Touch or no-touch Quality Control Technology Needs to be very flexible Needs an ongoing R&amp;D spend COTS Repositories Problems with federation and management Contributor-based licensing models Inflexible and slow to respond to user-needs Costly licensing leaves no money for R&amp;D Closed architectures, vendor lock-in … antithetical

  • Diagram (Terry &amp; Claire’s paper) A 3 – stage model supports the three categories of users across the NDLR national service; a)     Individual academics (LIPs or Learning Innovation Projects ) b)     Groupings of academics (LINCs or Learning Innovation Community Support Projects ) c)     SMART Communities of Practice (SMARTCoPs)   Individual Academics – Level 1 (LIPs) The NDLR, through the local Institutional representative, provides support and encourages the development and sharing of reusable teaching and learning resources to members of academia through the coordination of a number of local initiatives and local supports, Learning Innovation Projects (LIPS) which are funded by the NDLR and executed locally within the University or Institution. The Learning Innovation Projects support the development of targeted reusable learning resources for use by individual academics and also for sharing in the repository;  Promotion of quality application of technology enhanced learning; Training support in response to the needs of academia; Promotion of open access digital rights management of teaching resources; Facilitation of Intra-Institutional Collaborations to assist in re-use of resource and teaching practices; and Integration of NDLR within the University and Institute through partnership with local programmes and centres such as the Teaching and Learning centres. Groupings of Academics – Level 2 (LINCs) The NDLR, through the services provided by the NDLR core support team, supports cross-institutional linking between academics and projects with shared interests through the following activities; Learning Innovation Community Support Projects (LINCS) which involves the competitive funding for Learning Innovation Community projects focused on subject areas and executed by groupings of academics across a minimum of three Universities or Institutes; The core NDLR support services team liaises with institutional coordiantors to  advise, facilitate and support collaboration between academics and staff groupings; Identification of synergies, promoting and extending collaborations between different academic groupings.  Strengthening these groupings and supporting their transition to SMART Communities of Practice ( S ustainable, M anageable, A ctive, R elevant and R eflective, T argeted).   SMART Communities of Practice ( S ustainable, M anageable, A ctive, R elevant and R eflective, T argeted).  - Level 3 (SMARTCoPs SMART CoPs are cross-institutional subject discipline related communities associated with locally funded institutional learning innovation projects (LIPS) and crossinstitutional collaborative projectsfunded (LINCs). They are nurtured and sustained from support given to individual academics and groupings at both local and national levels.  SMART CoPs are focused on targeted funded RLO development through projects, and evolve from successful collaborations through LINC projects.  The NDLR provides support to SMART CoPs through; Advice and support in the creation and use of reusable learning resources; Promotion and facilitation of information and training events, workshops, development tools and case studies; Provision and hosting of an NDLR community portal available for online collaboration within and between projects; Cross-institutional linking between academics and projects with shared interests;  
  • Individual Academics – Level 1 (LIPs) The NDLR, through the local Institutional representative, provides support and encourages the development and sharing of reusable teaching and learning resources to members of academia through the coordination of a number of local initiatives and local supports, Learning Innovation Projects (LIPS) which are funded by the NDLR and executed locally within the University or Institution.
