Transcript of "HEA UK Centre for Bioscience OER Pilot Project Overview"
Finding, adopting and adapting resources to support practical work
can be difficult. Many projects produce outputs that may be suitable
for use in other institutions in similar (or even quite different) situations
but for some reason fail to get adopted as widely as they might be.
Open Educational Resources
in the Biosciences
Enhancing Teaching and Learning with Laboratory and Fieldwork Resources
The project has culminated in a large number of high quality, proven
teaching resources being released under a Creative Commons
Share-Alike licence. These are available from a freely accessible
JISC-supported central repository, JorumOpen, from which
resources are easy to discover and download.
Further details and links to all our available resources can be found
A range of formats, including:
•Interactive laboratory simulations
•Scenario-based learning packages
•Video and Image collections
•Hosted, service-based case
The UK Centre for Bioscience led a programme across ten institutions
to enable the preparation and sharing of open educational
resources relating to laboratory and fieldwork teaching, to build an
‘Interactive Laboratory and Fieldwork Manual for the Biosciences’
Access to high quality
teaching and learning
resources with accompanying
guidance on re-using for your
own teaching, and
information on producing and
uploading your own OERs.
