OERs across sectors<br />Overview<br />Emerging issues relating to OERs and FE and early lessons we could share or even approaches that may be useful. How will our OERs be used across the sectors – FE, work-based students, independent learners? <br />Does this change how we develop or release them?<br />Projects and partners<br /><ul><li>challenges that are specific to FE
take-home message for other projects working with FE</li></ul>Discussion<br /><ul><li>potential dissemination routes for FE lessons and outputs.

Thoughts from Terry McAndrew Bioscience Subject Centre and Techdis<br /><ul><li>One of the challenges to FE is the higher proportion of students with accessibility needs
FE grasps the cloud's resources more easily (as I see it) as it has less in-house provision than HE
FE networks of resources (e.g. LSIS excellence gateway - http://www.excellencegateway.org.uk/) may not be well known to HE. Those in FE might find opportunities to tie in with similar subject disciplines in HE or link generic resources. http://skills.library.leeds.ac.uk/student_homepage.php with http://tlp.excellencegateway.org.uk/tlp/xcurricula/employability/index.php?i=9
HE might be willing to learn from more the FE sector if it knew what worked well for them.</li></ul>OERs across sectors<br />
