Classroom Aid: What to Consider When Publishing #OER

Classroom Aid: What to Consider When Publishing #OER | Open Educational Resources (OER) | Scoop.it

For creating open content as a continually ongoing process of refinement, re-distribution, correction, modification, re-arrangement and reuse, better quality of the open content is the result of these possibilities. It’s important to make reuse easier. This requires authors to consider visibility and circulation of the published open educational resources(OER).

Javiera Atenas & Leo Havemann - Questions of quality in repositories of open educational resources: a literature review

"Open educational resources (OER) are teaching and learning materials which are freely available and openly licensed. Repositories of OER (ROER) are platforms that host and facilitate access to these resources. ROER should not just be designed to store this content – in keeping with the aims of the OER movement, they should support educators in embracing open educational practices (OEP) such as searching for and retrieving content that they will reuse, adapt or modify as needed, without economic barriers or copyright restrictions. This paper reviews key literature on OER and ROER, in order to understand the roles ROER are said or supposed to fulfil in relation to furthering the aims of the OER movement."

David Wiley: The Open Education Infrastructure, and Why We Must Build It

"Despite thoughtful disagreement about the term “infrastructure” from people I greatly respect, I continue to find the term extraordinarily useful in my own thinking about how we improve education. As interest in competency-based education continues to grow, we have an incredible opportunity to expand and to open the core pieces of the education infrastructure."

Stanford Online | Open Knowledge: Changing the Global Course of Learning - 9.3.14 to 12.12.14 | Open Educational Resources (OER) | Scoop.it

"Open source, open science, open data, open access, open education, open learning -- this course provides an introduction to the important concept of openness from a variety of perspectives, including education, publishing, librarianship, economics, politics, and more, and asks you to discover what it means to you. Open Knowledge is international and multi-institutional, bringing together instructors and students from Canada, Ghana, Mexico, the United States, and the rest of the world. It will challenge you take control of your own education, to determine your own personal learning objectives, to contribute to the development of the curriculum, to reflect on your progress, to learn new digital skills, and to take a leadership role in the virtual classroom. It will also provide you with the opportunity to connect with colleagues from different countries and professions, and to better understand areas where your interests overlap and where unexpected distincts exist. We hope you’ll consider taking this journey with us."

Rob Farrow: The value of an #OERmap

Rob Farrow: The value of an #OERmap | Open Educational Resources (OER) | Scoop.it

"

It’s all been pretty busy here at the OERRH HQ.  Conference season has now ended and with a bit of time to draw breath I’m writing about the recent OER Map prototypes funded by Hewlett Foundation.  Mapping has a bit of a history in the OER movement and these map prototypes (along with our OER Impact Map) represent the latest attempts to produce the definitive map of OER.  Hewlett in particular has been very interested in mapping as a way of drawing together the different aspects of the work it funds around OER.  You can read theoriginal CFP here.
My aims here will be twofold:
1. As a ‘critical friend’ with experience in this field I’m offering a bit of critique in the public domain – obviously just my own opinions but maybe someone will find something useful in there.
2. As the design lead of OER Impact Map I want to learn from alternative approaches and identify possible avenue of collaboration."

Jan Neumann: Some Basic Thoughts About OER Policy

Jan Neumann: Some Basic Thoughts About OER Policy | Open Educational Resources (OER) | Scoop.it

"National OER policies determine the framework within which other OER actors can develop. By doing so they form a mighty leverage to shape the OER ecosystem of a country. Though we are still at the beginning, initial achievements are promising. Approaches like the OER policy registry by Creative Commons provide the possibilities to follow and speed up the development. Supportive will also be, that openness and sharing are among the core values of the OER movement. If we manage to obtain this also for the field of policy by sharing our experiences and lessons learned, fast progression should be possible."

Open Badges MOOC - Live session on Monday, June 23, 2-3:00 ET: The Role of Badges in Alternative Credentialing

In response to specific employer/industry requirements and the particular needs of the adult learner, interest in new approaches to credentialing is on the rise. In December, 2013, the U.S. Dept. of Education issued a notice inviting suggestions for new experiments for the Experimental Sites Initiative. The notice expressed particular interest in competency-based education programs and prior learning assessment for postsecondary education. This session will investigate various ways that open badges provide the basis for alternative credentialing programs.

"Education aspires to bring about change; whether to change individuals and societies, or to change knowledge, attitudes, and practices. The act of devising plans of activities, resources, and tools to achieve such change is an act of learning design. This book sets out to share design knowledge about the use of technology in teaching and learning, and to explore how we might best share this design knowledge amongst educators, but also between educators, researchers, and technology developers."

Institutional Open Education and OER Policies - a free webinar w. Paul Bacsich & Teresa Bird, 23 Jun 2014 12:30 PM | Open Educational Resources (OER) | Scoop.it

This webinar will provide two perspectives on OER policies and seek to answer some of the key questions related to Open Education and OER policies. The questions below will drive the session delivered by our presenters and form the basis of the discussion which follows.
- Why have a policy?
- What are the problems in developing a policy?
- How do you get your teaching staff on board?
- Did it require extra staff (as with MOOCs in some cases)?
- What are the main elements of your policy? For example, is there was a minimum/maximum amount of OER that could be used e.g. only 50% could be made up from OER.
- Have you had feedback from students about the policy?
- Has there been feedback (good/bad) from students as a result?'
- What have been the key benefits of developing and having a policy?

OKFestival: Open Educational Resources and Policy: July 16 • 12:00 - 13:00 | Open Educational Resources (OER) | Scoop.it

"Over the last five years, Open Educational Resources (OER) policies have increasingly developed around the world, creating new opportunities and introducing new challenges. The European "Opening Up Education" initiative, launched last year, brought the idea of open education into the mainstream, while also introducing the potential for "openwashing": thinning out the standards of openness. The workshop will be targeted at people working on the development of open policies, but who are not necessarily knowledgeable about OER. We will start with a global overview of OER policy, a quick snapshot of key cases and models being adopted. In the second part, we will lead a discussion on what is a model OER policy and how it related to other open policies (for Open Access or Open Data, for instance)."
