OER@UCL Launch Event
28 March 2011
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.
" 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.
- 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.
