Open Education event - Open Repositories

  1. 1. Open Repositories: Re:Source Open Education Tuesday 26 November 2013 Garry Cameron & Jackie Graham
  2. 2. Why? • New regional sector • Funding on a regional basis – regional outcome agreements • The time is right for colleges to open up their educational content • Curriculum alignment • Quality and efficiency
  3. 3. The Good... • Awareness of the benefits of open sharing • Colleges want and need high quality resources for repurposing, reworking and reformatting with copyright clearance having been granted • College Development Network resources developed through project activity are published under open licences
  4. 4. The Good... • Existing resources are being updated and relicensed under open licences as appropriate • Strong partnership approach • Focus now on collection creation • Open Scotland summit
  5. 5. The Not So Good... • Reaching senior managers who have the vision to publish under open licence • Support that facilitates OER • Using Re:Source to share content • It is great to start small with content creation • Winning hearts and minds
  6. 6. The Not at All Good... • Structural, organisational and attitudinal barriers for adoption of OER • Lack of recognition for college staff who may consider developing and publishing OER • Lack of a planned, managed, supported and encouraged process
  7. 7. However... • Re:Source has the potential to be a massive success story in the new regional structure • We know what needs to happen to continue the discussions started at the Open Scotland summit • We are starting small!
  8. 8. Your suggestions to help... • What more can we do to promote OER in the sector?
