The nature of these open materials means that anyone can legally and freely copy, use, adapt and re-share them. OERs range from textbooks to curricula, syllabi, lecture notes, assignments, tests, projects, audio, video and animation.” (UNESCO definition) Source: http://www.unesco.org/new/en/communication-and-information/access-to-knowledge/open-educational-resources/what-are-open-educational-resources-oers/ Open Educational Resources?

  15. 15. 15 Opening Educational Practices in Scotland “I wanted to make sure that there was dual attribution, so it wasn’t just attributing to GCU, I wanted the author to have their name on (…) so they can take [the resources] and evidence the development and the work they’ve done, and they can take them with them through their careers” Marion Kelt, on Glasgow Caledonian University OER policy
  16. 16. 16 Opening Educational Practices in Scotland What about Quality? Picturecredit:PublicDomain “Because I've got a high-quality primary source of information, I've got more time to find supplements, labs, to do activities, and to have discussions with my students. My instructional practice has definitely improved since I'm not having to seek out high-quality sources of information and have a trusted source.” (Educator using OpenStax College textbooks, 2014-5 Survey) BCcampus open textbook sprint participants (Photo Credit: BCcampus_News CC- BY SA 2.0 http://tinyurl.com/mank4kf)
