DHOER at the OER11 conference

18 May 2011

OER11

The DHOER project was represented at OER11 (the annual Open Educational Resources conference) held at Manchester by Simon Mahony and Ulrich Tiedau with a presentation titled: Open Educational Resources in Digital Humanities.

This talk highlighted the UCLDH take on digital humanities and the rationale for what we do. This was followed by some examples of the teaching materials that we plan to release and a discussion of the many benefits to be gained from doing so.

This three day event at the Manchester Conference Centre, with an international array of speakers, showcased innovative projects and thinking in three main strands: strategy and sustainability; academic practice and scholarship; collaboration and communities. As always, this proved a great opportunity for networking and exchanging ideas with other practitioners in this growing field.

It was very pleasing to hear from the organisers that they considered that DHOER had the best logo and graphics (with thanks to Rudolf Ammann!).
