Continuation to UKOER OMAC strand announced

By Ulrich Tiedau, on 18 August 2011

JISC and the Higher Education Academy have released a Call for Proposals for the third phase of the UK Open Educational Resources programme (UKOER3). One strand in this programme will be a continuation of the Open Materials for Accredited Courses (OMAC) strand of UKOER2 that this project, CPD4HE, forms part of.

15 projects, at a maximum of £20,000, will be funded from October 2011 to September 2012, building on the success of UKOER2. They will involve the release of high quality resources to support HEA accredited programmes or schemes of professional development that meet the UK Professional Standards Framework for Teaching and Supporting Learning in Higher Education (UK PSF). The deadline for proposals is noon on 5 September 2011.
