Designing open educational resources

  1. 1. Designing Open Educational Resources (OER) based materials Tips for creating open educational resources like a ninja OEP! Teresa MacKinnon Principal Teaching Fellow, Warwick University
  2. 2. OEP and sustainable teaching “A European-wide framework could stimulate the creation…and the supply of quality digital content…European framework conditions could also boost synergies across countries in the development of innovative teaching and learning practices and thus help to improve the quality of European education” Reusing Open Resources (Littlejohn et al, 2014, p85)
  3. 3. A changing landscape •Learning theories •Teaching approaches •Digital capability
  4. 4. Challenges and opportunities identified: • embedding Creative Commons licensing into institutional practices • clarification of copyright restrictions • a need for clear institutional policies for OER and OEP • opportunity for reaching geographically distributed learners • fostering freedom to innovate • recognition of the powerful benefits of open teaching resources
  5. 5. Identifying the issue: • fewer resources dedicated to the purchase and development of teaching materials... often assumed that such resourcing is no longer necessary • Our reflections on language teaching in the UK and Australia, we identify a gap between what is available online and can be distributed via institutionally-adopted means, and what can be a) suitably modified for educational purposes, and b) legally used, especially in a context where large class sizes and online distribution models are being embraced as cost- cutting measures. Article focus: • identify a number of barriers to the adoption of OER, with a particular focus on video resources, including policies aimed at protecting IP rather than facilitating learning outcomes, copyright concerns, commercial agreements, and the resourcing of staff, as well as outlining a vision for grassroots OER also known as “little OER” (Weller 2011 p109) Such barriers relate to the following areas: • the legal framework for sharing (e.g. policies relating to IP, copyright concerns, commercial agreements with publishers) • the responsibilities for managing shared resources (ownership of platforms for sharing) • the psychology of sharing (individual responses to using and creating resources, concerns regarding recognition of work)
