  • This isn’t just about being cool or about the content, it’s really about the classroom.
  • The Open.Michigan team can help you make things open so that they can be shared, used, built upon, etc. So that you don’t have to worry about infringing and those who use your work know how they can make use of your material.
  • The Open.Michigan website is the front door to U-M’s Open.Michigan initiative. Web address: http://open.umich.edu
  • In 2007, the Medical School Dean issued a mandate that all pre-clinical materials be made into OER, positioning the University of Michigan as the first Medical School to accomplish this. Deans from Nursing, Pharmacy, Dentistry, and Public Health all pledged their support.
  • The University of Michigan Medical School contributes to the Open Educational Resources (OER) effort, which disseminates educational materials to educators, physicians, clinicians, students, and self-learners throughout the world, free of charge. By enabling global access to our health science education materials — lectures, labs, and other course curricula — through OER, the University of Michigan Medical School is improving health education and health care delivery within the University, the State of Michigan, and worldwide. Through funding from several philanthropic foundations, the University of Michigan Medical School is contributing to this global OER effort and building national and international visibility for the excellence of our educational materials and research.
  • The https://open.umich.edu/education/ page is the front door for the OER component of the Open.Michigan initiative.

    2. or... creating interesting and useful educational materials using openly licensed content
    3. or... why your students, colleagues, and others around the world will thank you for creating and using openly licensed educational materials
    4. “Openly Licensed Educational Materials” ?
    5. aka: Open Educational Resources
    6. OER
    7. what is OER? why OER? open licenses challenges generate OER open.michigan who to talk to
    8. OA OCW eLearning OER & Definition by boundaries:
    9. The difference between: Open Access (OA) and OER .
    10. <ul>OA focuses on sharing content, usually of scholarly nature, without a requirement for the use of an Open license OER includes any educational content that is shared under an Open license </ul>
    11. OER and OA are friends
    12. free, permanent, full-text, online access to scientific and scholarly works openly licensed educational content OA // OER - buddies OA OER
    13. The difference between: Open Course Ware (OCW) and OER .
    14. <ul>OCW focuses on sharing open content that is developed specifically to instruct a course OER includes any educational content that is shared under an open license, whether or not it is a part of a course </ul>
    15. OCW is a subset of OER
    16. OCW, single images, general campus lectures, image collections, singular learning modules, paper or article syllabi, lecture notes, presentation slides, assignments, lecture videos - all related to a course OCW // OER - overlap OER OCW
    17. The difference between: eLearning and OER
    18. eLearning are electronic instructional resources that are not necessarily Openly licensed. OER materials are designed to be the physical or electronic building blocks of instructional resources and are always Openly licensed. OER and eLearning: a relationship.
    19. intersection represents open, electronic, instructional resources eLearning // OER - intersection OER eLearning
    20. “ Openly Licensed?” comes from the definition...
    21. the OER Definition : “Open educational resources are educational materials and resources offered freely and openly for anyone to use and under some licenses to remix, improve and redistribute.”
    22. From the OER Definition : “ Open educational resources are educational materials and resources offered freely and openly for anyone to use and under some licenses to remix, improve and redistribute.”
    23. We'll get to licenses later...

    25. benefits of OER: for faculty
    26. benefits of OER: for faculty recognition publish and promote their resources connect with other collaborators extend their reach and visibility
    27. benefits of OER: for faculty tenure review board recognition publish and promote their resources to impress tenure review boards connect with other collaborators extend their reach and visibility to impress tenure review boards
    28. benefits of OER: for the university
    29. The mission of the University of Michigan is to serve the people of Michigan and the world through preeminence in creating, communicating, preserving and applying knowledge, art, and academic values, and in developing leaders and citizens who will challenge the present and enrich the future. benefits of OER: for the university

    94. OER production typically involves three main policy concerns reducing risk
    95. main policy concerns :: copyright : U.S. law grants limited exclusive rights to authors of creative works :: endorsement : avoiding the appearance of endorsing a 3 rd party :: p rivacy : the protection of patient and student privacy

    142. And then from that small first step...
    143. Health OER Disseminates edu cat ional materials to educators, physicians, clinicians, students, and self-learners throughout the world, free of charge. Enables global access to our health science education materials: lectures, labs, and other course curricula.
