OER-Certification for Higher Education

  1. 1. Martin Ebner Amsterdam, June 2018 OER-Certification for Higher Education SIG Participants: Ebner, M., Kopp, M., Hafner, R., Budroni, P., Buschbeck, V., Enkhbayar, A., Ferus, A., Freisleben-Teutscher, C. F., Gröblinger, O., Matt, I., Ofner, S., Schmitt, F., Schön, S., Seissl, M., Seitz, P., Skokan, E., Vogt, E., Waller, D. & Zwiauer, C. Results of the Austrian SIG „Open Educational Resources“ Martin Ebner Association „Forum Neue Medien in der Lehre Austria“ This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License.
  2. 2. Martin Ebner Amsterdam, June 2018 Goal §  Content of the recommendations for the Austrian higher education landscape with regard to the sustainable integration of OER in the education landscape: "Creation and establishment of national OER labels". §  Concept for OER-Certification at Austrian universities and further academic teaching institutions
  3. 3. Martin Ebner Amsterdam, June 2018 Assumption The proposal is based on certification of the processes of creating and providing Open Educational Resources (OER). However, the quality of the content itself and legal certainty of the learning objects should not be certified. This would not be possible for legal, organisational and ultimately also financial reasons.
  4. 4. Martin Ebner Amsterdam, June 2018 Overview §  Define OER? §  OER-Certification §  OER-Certification of lecturers §  OER-Certification of Higher Education institutions §  Open Badges §  Recommendations
  5. 5. Martin Ebner Amsterdam, June 2018 Open Educational Resources Open Educational Resources (OERs) are any type of educational materials that are in the public domain or introduced with an open license. 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, 2012)

  7. 7. Martin Ebner Amsterdam, June 2018 OER-Certification of Austrian Higher Education institutions The certification of OER is divided into two areas: certification of the lecturers on the one hand and certification of the higher education institution itself on the other. As a certification body, a central nationwide office is proposed, which should be composed of representatives of the universities in order to ensure not only an objective assessment but also sufficient expertise.

  9. 9. Martin Ebner Amsterdam, June 2018 OER-Certification of lecturers §  Part 1: The first part is fulfilled if a lecturer has verifiably created and published a total of three OER-objects. §  Part 2: For the second part, the lecturers must prove that they have completed an OER training. Proposal for a two-stage process:
  10. 10. Martin Ebner Amsterdam, June 2018 §  The personal certificates should apply to all university lecturers. §  They remain valid even if you change employer and therefore have no expiry date. §  In order to prove that OERs have been created, it is proposed that they be stored in repositories offered by universities or named by them as suitable. §  The use of a CC-0-, CC-BY- or CC-BY-SA license or a comparable free license is required to license the OER. OER-Certification of lecturers
  11. 11. Martin Ebner Amsterdam, June 2018 §  The qualification measure required for Part 2 should be offered and implemented by all HEIs in a comparable form or at least with the same workload. §  For the completion of Part 2, a qualification measure to the extent of one European Credit (i.e. a total of 25 working hours) is proposed. §  As part of the "Open Education Austria" project, a proposal was developed and tested for this purpose: a blended learning approach with an introductory and final event in combination with a MOOC. OER-Certification of lecturers
  12. 12. Martin Ebner Amsterdam, June 2018 Overview §  Define OER? §  OER-Certification §  OER-Certification of lecturers §  OER-Certification of Higher Education institutions §  Open Badges §  Recommendations
  13. 13. Martin Ebner Amsterdam, June 2018 OER-Certification of Higher Education institutions §  Part 1: The higher education institution has a corresponding OER-qualification-measure (training) and publicly commits itself strategically to using Open Educational Resources. §  Part 2: The higher education institution has a defined number of OER-certified level 2 lecturers. §  Part 3: The higher education institution offers its own repository (or a suitable joint solution in cooperation with other universities) for its lecturers in which OER-objects can be stored. Proposal of a three-stage concept:
  14. 14. Martin Ebner Amsterdam, June 2018 §  Only one of the three parts must be provided by the higher education institution in order to achieve level 1. To achieve level 2, two of the three parts must be verified and to achieve level 3, all three parts must be verified. §  The issued certificate is valid for a period of three years and will then be re-evaluated accordingly. If a new stage is reached in the meantime, the term begins anew with the submission of the new stage. OER-Certification of Higher Education institutions
  15. 15. Martin Ebner Amsterdam, June 2018 §  Higher education institution with a total of less than 1000 students: 5 certified lecturers §  Higher education institution with 1000 - 3000 students: 10 certified lecturers §  Higher education institution with 3000 - 5000 students: 20 certified lecturers §  Higher education institution with >5000 students: 40 certified lecturers The number of OER-certified level 2 lecturers required is determined by the number of students and is defined as follows: OER-Certification of Higher Education institutions
