  10. 10. TRUE: Teaching Resources for Undergraduate Economics Project Aim: Our aim is to create a wiki-based online repository for economics lecturers to share, search for, and download teaching materials to support their lectures. Materials such as question and answer sheets, video clips, PowerPoint presentations, links to websites, and .exe programmes, will be freely available for users to download and adapt for their own teaching and lecturing purposes. Our twelve month project aims to gather educational resources currently ‘hidden’ behind institutional virtual learning environments and then share them under an ‘attribution – non commercial’ Creative Commons License [1] . The project is part of the UK OER (Open Education Resources) initiative funded by JISC, and builds on the success of the Health Economics wiki at: Benefits of getting involved: The project team are looking for help to populate this resource with material from as many institutions as possible. Join a specialist interest group Get involved at an early stage in an emerging academic specialist interest group in your sub-discipline of economics. Contribute material to a shared resource, and be part of a developing community. Advertise your own courses and programmes of study Materials are attributed to you and your organisation, and may reference the programme(s) of study for which they have been developed. Obtain feedback from your academic peers The potential is available to openly invite feedback from your peers, and those who review and use the materials. Enhance the teaching and learning experience for all involved Be part of a nationwide initiative and share good teaching practice.

  23. 28. What formats will my material be transformed into? What’s in it for me? Recognition and the potential for collaboration with peers. Enhanced recruitment, departmental and institutional visibility. Project Coordinator – Gabi Witthaus What licence will you release the materials under? We are committed to releasing content on an open licence so have selected the Creative Commons ‘Attribution, Non-commercial, Share-alike’ licence. Copyright Administrator – Tania Rowlett Text or PDF file, PowerPoint slides, video, audio, Second Life artefact, self-contained XHTML site. The list of formats is endless. Project Adviser/Learning Technologist – Richard Mobbs UKOER Institutional Strand
  24. 29. How can I be sure about the quality of an OER? What challenges have you faced so far? Where will my OERs be found? Quality can be assessed in a number of ways: enhancement as part of the production process; institutional reputation in a given discipline; individual academic profile/expertise in a given subject area; and an emerging community around the OER. OER Evaluator – Samuel Kotei Nikoi Opening access to resources requires a major culture shift. Bringing colleagues on board is part of the challenge. Operating outside the VLE generates much resistance , as does the open release of materials that are part of courses for which students pay. . Project Director – Alejandro Armellini Your OERs will be untethered and released into online repositories around the World ready for re-use and re-purposing.
