    2. 2. Re:Source www.resourceshare.ac.uk • collaborative project led by Scotland’s Colleges (now College Development Network) in partnership with SQA, Education Scotland, JISC Regional Support Centre Scotland. • developed and hosted by Mimas, the University of Manchester. • open resource-sharing service for the college sector in Scotland, launched November 2012.
    3. 3. Aims of the service: • To improve access to open learning and teaching resources within the college sector in Scotland and help the sector achieve greater efficiency in the provision of learning and teaching resources • To develop and maintain a shared resource-sharing environment where the use, sharing, creation and re-purposing of digital resources is pervasive and effective, providing a national focal point for open content shared by the sector and open materials held elsewhere. • To promote the benefits of open sharing and shift the culture within the sector to a greater use and sharing of open resources in line with wider OER activity.
    4. 4. Development • development of existing shared repository service • widening ‘depositor’ access without extra cost • changes in sector: mergers, regionalisation • move to open licensing • scoping and learning from experience of Jorum, NDLR • timing, opportunity for partnership • delivered new shared service at less than half annual cost
    5. 5. Consultation Round table consultation held with college and sector representatives. Scoping of requirements. Further consultation process led by Lou McGill, independent consultant • individual interviews with representatives from Scotland's Colleges, colleges and partner agencies. • online questionnaire to canvas views and involve further stakeholders in the process • findings informed report and engagement strategy (October 2012).
    6. 6. Engagement strategy With long-term aim of embedding open sharing within everyday practice of staff, Engagement Strategy: • identified challenges, opportunities, benefits • possible activities and actions, ways to measure success • identified different stakeholder groups, which will gain different benefits from the service • recognised that awareness-raising needs long-term staged approaches • recognised that not everyone will engage in the same way • recommended use of the experience of previous JISC wide-scale change management programmes • advocated a big vision but focus on achievable activities and targets.
    7. 7. Engagement action plan Specific recommendations for embedding change in practice: • national/policy level - o visible commitment to and promotion of benefits of open sharing o build on links with other partners/sectors to share resources • regional level - o strategy/policy to reflect commitment to open sharing o highlight benefits of sharing within region and wider • institutional level - o systems and services to support open sharing o staff development to recognise open practice • subject discipline/professional networks - o support collection development and showcasing o highlight open sharing of both resources and practice
