    • Series of development activities
      • “ Before” and “after” narratives
      • Encouraging reflection
      • Mapping the modules
      • Providing the context
      • An iterative process
      Shared working space: pbworks wiki
    • Teaching materials
      • Tacit understandings
      • Localised
      • Context-bound
      • Located on institutional VLEs
      • The need to tease out the teaching rationale
    • Some propositions for pedagogical frameworks
      • What is a pedagogical framework? The point is not to construct one ideal pedagogical framework; but neither are all possible frameworks equally satisfactory.
      • Goodyear, P & Jones, C (2004) Pedagogical frameworks for DNER (Distributed National Electronic Resource)
    • Some propositions about the framework for the use and re-use of open educational resources: Part 1
      • a. courses are designed as 'sets' of modules (i.e. they have been modularised)
      • b. modules (in line with HE convention and practice) are aligned with learning outcomes, and a form of assessment
      • c. the contextualisation of modules involves intent that is often implicit / tacit / invisible - and constructing them to be shared requires this intent to be re-examined by a) the originator b) future user(s)
    • Some propositions about the framework for the use and re-use of open educational resources: Part 2
      • d. the re-use of modules that require strong context might afford (cultural) reproduction rather than a (re)design for learning
      • e. stripping away contextual info in modules in order that they might be re-used is problematic in that insufficient structure may remain for others to use
    • Dimensions of transformation:
      • translation
      • ownership
      • re-use
      • recontextualisation
    • Producing materials which are:
      • Shareable
      • Customisable
      • Accessible
      • Pedagogically robust
      • Open (CC licensing)
    • Case studies
      • Partners’ reflections on the process: before, during, after
      • Focused around one module but reflect across the scope of the project
    • Project toolkit
      • Map
      • Diagnose
      Generate (work in progress!)
