  9. 9. The African Health OER Network Our goal is to advance health care education in Africa by using open educational resources (OER) to share knowledge, address curriculum gaps, and build communities of practice around health education. We have been working primarily with institutions in Ghana and South Africa but we continue to draw in more African institutions. We aim to develop models of collaboration and sustainability that can be replicated in other regions of the world.

  11. 11. Network Activities  Training and workshops  Mentoring and consulting  Reference services for finding OER on a given health topic  Reviewing content for copyright, privacy, and endorsement considerations  Content production and distribution Content evaluation and assessment.

  13. 13. March 2010 Design Jam Topic Can we build a shared social network platform that addresses global health education needs and increases the sharing of health education resources?
  14. 14. March 2010 Design Jam Takeaways Advocacy  academic incentive through awards (e.g. best learning resource for X)  students as drivers of the network (generating demand) Organizational Structure  standardized metadata  dynamic site content to encourage people to return Technical Platform  explore LAN access through caching and tracking local users who downloaded materials
  15. 15. Today’s Design Challenge How can we engage students around the world as content producers and advocates for health open educational resources?
  16. 16. Design Constraints  This network will have technical (e.g. website) and social (e.g. community health OER creators and users) dimensions  Student involvement - at U-M and other institutions - will most often be on a volunteer basis and may occasionally be through paid, part-time work.  Bandwidth varies greatly between countries. Any platform must be accessible (e.g. navigation, file size) from members within Africa as well as observers outside the continent.  Since travel is time-consuming and costly, it is difficult for members to gather for in-person meetings.
  17. 17. Seeds for Discussion 1. What can we have students do? • Generate demand for OER • Organize OER (e.g. keywords) • Review OER • Facilitate a community (e.g. study group) around OER • Other ideas? 2. Which students are we targeting? In which disciplines? At which universities? 3. What are their incentives to participate?
