    Intro to SCoPE OER Seminar Intro to SCoPE OER Seminar Presentation Transcript

    • Intro to SCoPE OER Seminar Scott Leslie Manager, Shareable Online Learning Resources BCcampus January 19, 2009
    • Outline
      • OER – They’re Everywhere! Really!
      • The Challenges I See
      • Proposed Structure for 3 weeks Discussions
      • What do YOU want?
    • 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
    • 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
    • Clearly, it’s even older than that
    • Let’s try that again…
    • HUGE Amount (and Growing) of ‘Formal’ OER
    •  
    •  
    •  
    •  
    •  
    •  
    • Hundreds of Smaller Projects
    • As well as MANY ways to find them
    •  
    •  
    • There’s an Even Larger Pool of ‘Informal’ Open Content
    •  
    •  
    •  
    •  
    •  
    • 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
    • What I’m hoping we can discuss in the next 3 weeks
    • 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?
    • 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?
    • 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?
    • But what is it about OERs that YOU want to talk about or learn?
