RePRODUCE: an overview

  1. 1. RePRODUCE Programme Content in Education 28/07/09 | | Slide Heather Williamson, JISC eLearning Programme Manager A 12month programme where 20 projects developed and ran quality assured technology enhanced courses using reused and repurposed learning materials sourced externally to their institution. The modules were run with a real cohort of students.  http://www.jisc.ac.uk/whatwedo/programmes/elearningcapital/reproduce
  2. 2. some of the lessons learned <ul><li>identification & selection </li></ul><ul><li>suitability of resources for teaching & learning </li></ul>RePRODUCE <ul><li>issues associated with access & licensing </li></ul>
  3. 3. identification & selection <ul><li>vast amount of confusion about copyright issues amongst academics – both those who are willing and those who are not willing to share materials. </li></ul><ul><li>the skills needed to repurpose learning objects may dissuade other institutions from attempting to re-use content </li></ul><ul><li>definite issue with in-depth quality when it comes to material that is available on a creative commons basis. There isn’t enough of it! </li></ul><ul><li>lack of clear and consistent standard taxonomies and hierarchies for searching various repositories. Content is often not “what it said on the tin”. </li></ul><ul><li>On the positive side: </li></ul><ul><li>sharing content and resources in terms of social learning is growing - for example, the use of sites such as Delicious and Flickr is increasingly common </li></ul>RePRODUCE
  4. 4. <ul><li> Intute  Salmon’s ‘E-tivities’ framework  UWE and BATH research </li></ul><ul><li>observatory </li></ul><ul><li> London Pedagogic Planner  National Data Archive  TechDis </li></ul><ul><li> X4L  REHASH project  Clinical Skills Online </li></ul><ul><li> eViP  JISC’s DesignShare, D4LD and LD4P projects </li></ul><ul><li> CETL for Reusable Learning Objects  London Pedagogy Planner </li></ul><ul><li> Jorum  repository related projects (Streamline and Persona) </li></ul><ul><li> Scottish Film Archive  Len Bird 3 C model to curriculum design </li></ul><ul><li> JISC digitisation programme </li></ul>28/07/09 | slide selection of the resources used RePRODUCE
  5. 5. suitability of resources for teaching & learning <ul><li>while content has to be context-free to be reused, the act of reuse inevitably requires contextualisation. </li></ul><ul><li>the producer of materials needs to work with both the module in mind AND future external usage </li></ul><ul><li>For the student a range of views identified: </li></ul><ul><li>from making no difference: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ prioritising reuse may not result in any significant difference in the learning experience from the student perspective” </li></ul></ul><ul><li>to a potentially negative impact: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ if students are ‘spoon-fed’ content resources or RLOs by tutors this could lead to the students not developing their own self-directed learning skills”. </li></ul></ul>RePRODUCE
  6. 6. issues associated with access & licensing <ul><li>RePRODUCE projects often found it challenging to clear rights from other UK universities and public sector organisations </li></ul><ul><li>rights status of content created and hosted by is often unclear – staff have moved, lack of policy, lack of documentation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>gentleman’s agreements vs formal arrangements </li></ul></ul><ul><li>generally an absence of clear rights statements especially around non-personal educational use </li></ul><ul><ul><li>ambivalence and opposition to permission for use and re-use </li></ul></ul><ul><li>identifying people with responsibility and ability to grant permissions and make decisions </li></ul><ul><li>future work: Open Educational Resources Programme: </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.jisc.ac.uk/oer </li></ul>RePRODUCE
