OER@UCL Launch Event

28 March 2011

UCL iTunesU

Date: Wednesday 30 March 2011
Time: 16:00 - 17:30
Venue: Foster Court 114 (map below)

Worldwide, significant effort is going into promoting the creation and use of open educational resources, or open courseware. In the UK, programmes such as UKOER have funded a wide range of projects. Institutions are developing repositories for both teaching and research material and releasing resources via iTunesU and YouTubeEdu.  

This has attracted media attention - the recent  story about the "OER University", for example. The Times Higher Education Supplement quoted Canadian academic Brian Lamb:

" open educational resources (OERs) could help to reassert the academy’s role as a ‘leader and guardian of free and open enquiry’ ... It is almost ‘criminally irresponsible’ to hoard academic knowledge in the digital age".

What is happening at UCL? This special Teaching and Learning Network session is to share information and raise awareness of Open Educational Resources (OERs) in UCL. The session will also see the formal launch of the OER@UCL web site, which serves as a central point for OER related information and activities around UCL.

Outline Programme

  • Introduction to Open Educational Resources
  • UCL OER projects – 10 minute show and tell for each project
  • Information and discussion of issues related to:

          o IPR and licensing;
          o Finding and using open educational resources, including demonstration of repositories;
          o The process of creating and releasing open resources.

Refreshments will be provided from 15:30 and everyone is welcome.
