Institutional Open Education and OER Policies - a free webinar w. Paul Bacsich & Teresa Bird, 23 Jun 2014 12:30 PM

Institutional Open Education and OER Policies - a free webinar w. Paul Bacsich & Teresa Bird, 23 Jun 2014 12:30 PM | OER in the Global South | 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?
