Transcript

  • 1. Intro to SCoPE OER Seminar Scott Leslie Manager, Shareable Online Learning Resources BCcampus January 19, 2009
  • 2. Outline
    • OER – They’re Everywhere! Really!
    • The Challenges I See
    • Proposed Structure for 3 weeks Discussions
    • What do YOU want?
  • 3. What’s an OER?
    • Isn’t that kind of like asking “What’s a Learning Object?”
    • Nooooo!!!!!! ( that means, “yes, exactly” )
    • OER refers to “educational resources (lesson plans, quizzes, syllabi, instructional modules, simulations, etc) that are freely available for use, reuse, adaption and sharing”
      • “ OER Handbook for Educators” http://www.wikieducator.org/OER_Handbook/educator_version_one/Introduction/Defining_OER
  • 4. OER “Movement” 10 Years Old
    • Wiley’s “Open Content” – later “Open Publication License” - 1998
    • Term ‘officially’ originated in 2002 at UNESCO 's Forum on the Impact of Open Courseware for Higher Education in Developing Countries
  • 5. Clearly, it’s even older than that
  • 6. Let’s try that again…
  • 7. HUGE Amount (and Growing) of ‘Formal’ OER
  • 8.  
  • 9.  
  • 10.  
  • 11.  
  • 12.  
  • 13.  
  • 14. Hundreds of Smaller Projects
  • 15. As well as MANY ways to find them
  • 16.  
  • 17.  
  • 18. There’s an Even Larger Pool of ‘Informal’ Open Content
  • 19.  
  • 20.  
  • 21.  
  • 22.  
  • 23.  
  • 24. BUT…
    • Often the “formal/institutional” OER projects were done on “soft” money that is drying up
    • Often adopted a “publishing” model in which content was made open after the course, as a supplementary (and thus less sustainable) act
    • Maybe overly focused on “content” which is clearly only a portion of what education involves
    • No one is sure what’s getting used, what effect it is having
  • 25. What I’m hoping we can discuss in the next 3 weeks
  • 26. Week 1 – Finding/Reusing OER
    • Some questions I’d love to discuss
    • What are OER's? What does ‘Openness’ mean to you?
    • Where do you currently go to find OER? Problems and Advantages?
    • How much time do you spend looking for appropriate OERs? When you find them, where do you store them?
    • Have you ever modified someone else's work for your own use? If not, why not? If so, how did it work out? Were there things that made it easier?
  • 27. Week 2 – Creating OER
    • Questions I’d love to discuss
    • Why create and share OER?
    • How do you currently author your course content? Would it be easy to share your course content now without a lot of additional work?
    • Why is creating your own course content in a way that is easily shareable and reusable a worthwhile goal for your own purposes ?
    • How to sustain OER efforts?
  • 28. Week 3 – Sharing/Sustaining OER
    • Questions I’d love to discuss
    • Where have you tried to share your OE Resource?
    • What's been your experience in trying to share an OER? What's stopping you from sharing?
    • How can we change so our educational practices (not just the content) to become more open?
    • Licensing - which license would you consider, and why?
    • How to make OERs more useful to people of different languages and cultural situations?
    • What is your ideal future for OER?
  • 29. But what is it about OERs that YOU want to talk about or learn?
