  • 1. OER and associated practices – opportunities and challenges
    Gráinne Conole,
    The Open University, UK
    g.c.conole@open.ac.uk
    OER Panel, DEHub/ODLAA SUMMIT
    Sydney, 14 to 18 February 2011
  • 2. Open Educational Resources
    Open Learning Initiative
  • 3. Level of granularity
    ‘Atomistic’: based around learning objects (Merlot)
    ‘Holistic: aligned to course structures (MIT)
    Format
    Simple, primarily text-based
    Rich multi-faceted multimedia
    Pedagogy
    Relatively neutral
    Embedded
    OER models
  • 4. Pedagogically diverse
    Conole, McAndrew & Dimitriadis, forthcoming
  • 5. OER - a vision of transformation
    Beyond content – focus on activity and use
    Learners as self-directed and autonomous
    More of a focus on sharing, refinement, iteration, critical reflection
    OER as a potential catalyst to transforming educational practice
    Improvements in social inclusion, quality and innovation
  • 6. From resources to practices
  • 7. The OPAL vision
    7
    Focus on the practice around OER rather than the resources
    Better understanding will lead to improvements in the quality of OER and more innovation
    Open Educational Resource Practice
    OEP constitute the range of practices around the creation, use and management of OER with the intent to improve quality and innovate education.
  • 8. Abstracting dimensions of Practice
    Open Educational Practices (OEP)
    Practices around the creation, use and management of Open Educational Resources
    Approach
    60+ case studies of OER collected
    Dimensions of OEP derived
    Online consultation process

  • 12. Maturity View
    INITIAL (not yet started): Process unpredictable, poorly controlled and reactive
    MANAGED: Process characterized for projects and is often reactive.
    DEFINED: Process characterized for the organisation and is proactive (Projects tailor their process from the organisation’s standard)
    OPTIMIZING (embedded / advanced): Process is measured and controlled, the focus on process improvement

  • 14. Uses and benefits
    Three uses
    Benchmarking
    Guidance
    Reflection and comparison
    Benefits
    Guides users in understanding how to think about the key issues.
    Flexible enough to cover the multiple stakeholders
    Sub-cubes provide practical illustrative examples
    Useful as a mechanism for institutions to self-benchmark

  • 16. Questions for debate
    A vision of OEP for inclusion, innovation & quality
    Learning and the context of learning have changed
    We need new approaches to learning and teaching
    How can we harness increasingly sophisticated tools and OERs?
    How can we support innovation in the use and reuse of OER?
    Will openness enable or restrict social inclusion?
    What are the quality implications in an increasingly open context?
    Will a focus on OER practices lead to improvements in quality and innovation?
