"I am pleased to report that there has been quite a bit of interest in the creation of a sustainable OER partnership among Medical Schools, institutions providing Healthcare programs, and repository providers. The Orange Grove repository and the FSU College of Medicine will be facilitating this first meeting to discuss common interests and goals. Seats are limited in this web meeting so please complete the Contact Information Form (http://bit.ly/sSzRg8) if you are interested in attending.

“The badges are another way to tell the story of who you are and what you know,” Dr. Yowell said. “What people are learning in school is often not connected to the world of work,” she said. “Badges can fill that gap.

Terry Anderson and Rory McGreal speak about Athabasca University and the OERu

Terry Anderson and Rory McGreal speak about Athabasca University and the OERu | Open Educational Resources (OER) | Scoop.it

This week I’ve had the good fortune to interview both Terry Anderson and Rory McGreal, who were visiting Leicester for a meeting with colleagues on a new, EU-funded OER project called POERUP (Policies for OER Uptake). I asked them both to give me their thoughts on how Athabasca was going to go about its participation in the OERu in terms of the four areas outlined in the graphic below. Both noted that they would be speaking more from a personal perspective than from a formal, institutional perspective, as the plans for the OERu are still in their infancy. This post contains a few highlights from the interviews.

 

If you want to skip straight to the punchline, here is Rory's vision of how the OERu will work:


"Cost effectiveness is the key… How do we educate these 97 million learners … in a cost-effective manner? This is the first idea that I’ve seen that practical implementation is possible. And this could work. And the way it’d work is this: if we could get a cadre, so we get ten percent of them through, so that’s ten million students, but that means there’s a cadre of students who’ve done it, in all these little villages and towns all around the world, and they’re an example to the others, and then you can build on that and build on it and build, and that’s the way you do it. But not only that; we have developed self-motivated learners, and that’s what you need - you need a person who is a self motivated learner. That’s more important than anything they learn. And so we build that up and we’re away…"

Thank you for rescooping this :-) Please note that I've just edited the blog post (http://goo.gl/bdTpJ). In the original post I had mistakenly indicated that Athabasca was already doing the "at-home" exams; however this is not yet in practice - it is under consideration and will be piloted next year. I had also referred to the "challenge exams" as a system, whereas they are currently being practised on a rather ad hoc basis with some systemic features. Thanks to Terry and Rory for the corrections.

SURVEY: What are the Key Challenges for the OER Movement? | OLnet

SURVEY: What are the Key Challenges for the OER Movement? | OLnet | Open Educational Resources (OER) | Scoop.it

A few weeks ago we posed the question to our network "What are the key challenges for the OER movement?". This started an interesting conversation between several OER experts, which finally has brought to a revised list of Key Challenges for the OER movement that have been added to the Evidence Hub (http://ci.olnet.org)

 

In parallel we have automatically processed 125 major OER project reports with a NPL from XEROX (XIP the Xerox Incremental Parser) in order to automatically extract key OER challenges. In this way we have obtained a list of key challenges for the OER movement partly through consultation with OER experts, and partly through automatically processing major OER project reports. We now would like to launch a survey which aims at assessing the validity and relevance of the results of machine processing in complementing human analysis.

 

Please help us by filling in this simple survey

Hi,

Is there a direct link for the survey? Or where can it found on the Evidence Hub. I apologize in advance, if its in plain sight and I simply missed it.

Thanks for your time.
