Upcoming workshop sessions
In this workshop you will focus on Open Educational Resources that you can build into the courses that you teach and the work you design for students to do.
This focus on work with OERs draws heavily on knowledge appropriate to the discipline or area in which you work, evaluating their appropriateness for the topic and level of study for which they are to be used.
You will develop a deeper understanding of the copyright issues in their teaching material, recognizing the implications of it for professional practice.
The focus on copyright issues reminds us that Higher Education does not exist in a vacuum and we need to be aware of the implications of external rules and regulations. The evaluation of OERs will incorporate judgement as to their relevance for the professional context.
