  • Mapped closely to ensure relevancy UKPSF – UK Professional Standards framework, HEA driven DL framework – LSE found one online, not as established as 7 pillars. Differences between material written specifically for PGCert and for general IL and DL training.
  • Worked examples mean that we have steps in place for people to follow to make their material OER and ensure it is compliant with everything it should be (hopefully). We did the worked examples to ensure we were on track but it also highlighted some best practice, such as the template, which we will continue to use in the future. Template loosely based on Kirkpatrick’s model (4 levels of learning evaluation – reaction, behaviour, learning and results)
  • Material specifically written for PGCert
  • Material written for various IL courses but were generic enough that they fitted nicely into existing PGCert modules.
  • Found material all over the place – recommend a single place where all IL and DR is kept (IR?) Creator workflow – many things to consider when mking an object into an OER and getting this embedded in the workflow will save a lot of time. Would recommend making OER compatibility part of authors’ workflow If you’re planning on releasing material as OERs then keep the audit process and documentation in mind as a standard procedure to record teaching material creation. Ask team members to submit their best training for OER conversion to spread the workload DELILA items look so good that we’re looking into changing all our items to match the new style.
  • Thrown up more questions than it has answered. Needs to be dealt with at an Institutional level. Have permission to add OERs to our repository for this project but Uni owns rights generally and we have no clear view of sharing these types of resources CC licences – we agreed to use 3.0 but plug-in for automatic integration into word/PPT automatically attributes 2.5 Moving forward – Shadow DELILA, UoB planning to re-use some of LSE’s DL material

    1. 1. <ul><li>Why, why, why DELILA…? </li></ul><ul><li>Releasing information and digital literacy content to support trainee teachers in higher education </li></ul>Catherine Robertson – University of Birmingham [email_address]
    2. 2. Who/what is DELILA? <ul><li>Developing Educators Learning and Information Literacy for Accreditation </li></ul><ul><li>PGCert could make use of generic Information and Digital Literacy material </li></ul><ul><li>JISC/HEA funded as part of the OMAC strand </li></ul><ul><ul><li>http://www.heacademy.ac.uk/ourwork/teachingandlearning/oer/phase2?tabIndex=2&#tab3 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>LSE lead – Jane Secker </li></ul><ul><li>UoB partner – Nancy Graham/Ann-Marie James </li></ul>
    3. 3. Aims and objectives <ul><li>To provide a model of embedded digital and information literacy support into teacher training at higher education level; </li></ul><ul><li>To release a small sample of open educational resources to support embedding digital and information literacy education into institutional teacher training courses accredited by the HEA including PGCerts and other CPD courses; </li></ul><ul><li>To customise local repositories to provide access to these resources. </li></ul>
    4. 4. Work packages <ul><li>IL Audit </li></ul><ul><li>Mapping of digital/information literacy to HEA framework </li></ul><ul><li>Review of content to ensure content can be made open </li></ul><ul><li>Conversion of material to appropriate format (licensing etc) </li></ul><ul><li>Repository customisation </li></ul><ul><li>Deposit of content </li></ul><ul><li>Dissemination and publicity </li></ul><ul><li>Quality control and evaluation </li></ul>
    5. 5. Work package 2 <ul><li>Map closely to educational and teaching frameworks </li></ul><ul><ul><li>UKPSF standards </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>SCONUL 7 pillars </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>DL framework </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Enhance value of material and increase likelihood of reuse </li></ul><ul><li>Some material was developed specifically for PGCert and the remainder currently used in IL and DL training </li></ul>
    6. 6. Worked examples <ul><li>Worked examples: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Follow a template – overview; resources available; format; credits/hours; which parts of IL/DL frameworks met; which parts of UKPSF met; module breakdown </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>LSE </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Already has material embedded in their PGCert </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Worked example has timings etc </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Bham </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Doesn’t have material embedded in PGCert </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Used generic material which fitted nicely with existing modules in PGCert </li></ul></ul></ul>
    7. 7. How OERs are used now - LSE <ul><li>Teaching and Learning Centre run the Post Graduate Certificate in Higher Education (PGCert) </li></ul><ul><li>In 2010, the PGCert was revised to embed elements of digital and information literacy </li></ul><ul><li>5 modules in total </li></ul><ul><ul><li>3 needed for Associate level and 5 needed for Fellowship of HEA </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Portfolio contains: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Mapping grid to show where specific elements of PSF are addressed in portfolio </li></ul></ul><ul><li>PGCert resources are obviously much more closely aligned to the PSF </li></ul><ul><li>LSE worked examples </li></ul>
    8. 8. LSE - Worked example 1
    9. 10. How OERs will be used - UoB <ul><li>Library Services Subject Advisors used to develop and run optional sessions in PGCert teaching. </li></ul><ul><li>Participants focused on compulsory elements and attendance dropped off. </li></ul><ul><li>Working with PGCert Co-ordinator to discuss individual modules and how existing learning objects can be used to enhance the PGCert. </li></ul><ul><li>PGCert is run by the Centre for Learning and Academic Development (CLAD) </li></ul><ul><li>2 Modules </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Module 1 (20 credits) = Associate </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Module 2 (40 credits) = Fellowship </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Portfolio contains evidence that learning outcomes have been met but isn’t directly mapped to the UKPSF </li></ul><ul><li>UoB worked examples </li></ul><ul><ul><li>http://epapersnew.bham.ac.uk/641/ </li></ul></ul>
    10. 11. UoB – Worked example 1
    11. 13. Other ways to use the OERs <ul><li>A great way of raising awareness of the IL and DL resources to academics, PGCert practitioners, educational developers, etc </li></ul><ul><li>Tagged with UKPSF, 7 Pillars and DL keywords so can choose them to meet very specific needs </li></ul><ul><li>Generic material so can be adapted for uses outside the PGCert </li></ul><ul><li>Mapping is meant to help someone work out how object will most help them </li></ul><ul><li>Use them anyway you want! </li></ul>
    12. 14. Impact on academic practice <ul><li>DELILA also covers other aspects of digital and information literacy which isn’t covered in the PGCert </li></ul><ul><li>Audit highlighted material that would be useful (eg copyright training) </li></ul><ul><li>Resources linked directly to PGCert will be converted as a priority but we aim to do all identified as useful </li></ul><ul><li>Promote existing resources to academics for re-use </li></ul><ul><li>Planning for further integration </li></ul>
    13. 15. Impact on academic practice (2) <ul><li>Academics who teach need to understand IL and DL </li></ul><ul><li>Deposit in IRs and OpenJorum </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Will be easier for new academics to locate and share relevant teaching resources </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Resources can be shared in their classes to spread DL and IL to students </li></ul><ul><li>Will highlight the uses of OERs and reusable learning objects. </li></ul><ul><li>Creating a workflow ensuring an object is an OER </li></ul>
    14. 16. Lessons learned <ul><li>Improve creator workflow </li></ul><ul><li>Keep IL/DL material in a single place </li></ul><ul><li>Make OER considerations such as embedding CC information etc, early on </li></ul><ul><li>Individuals to submit their best material regularly </li></ul>
    15. 17. Ongoing challenges <ul><li>IPR issue ongoing </li></ul><ul><li>CC licences </li></ul><ul><li>Moving forward… </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Workshop day at Senate House 26 th July </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>DELILA 2? </li></ul></ul>
