  • 5. 5 Why open education? ● Range and quality of OERs is rapidly increasing ● Flexibility - can be accessed anytime, anywhere, any way ● Quality improvement – open material attracts review, comment and editing ● Cost – some short-term cost (e.g., in switching to or developing OERs), but long- term savings
  • 6. 6 How to go open? ● Make gradual changes towards openness each teaching cycle ● Audit copyright licenses for materials and switch to, and/or develop, OERs ● Minimise barriers to engagement (e.g., open materials to public) ● Encourage students to contribute (e.g., via open assessment tasks) ● Use well-known OER platforms for developing and hosting materials (e.g., Wikiversity, WikiEducator) ● Share with open communities - engage with open communities of practice for support and mentoring
