Guardian HE Live Chat: Open Access in Higher Education, 28/10/2011, 12-2 BST

UlrichTiedau28 October 2011

After a talk point and a poll, the Guardian Professional Higher Education Network wants to give the subject of open access the full consideration it deserves.

To coincide with Open Access Week, on Friday 21 October, from 12–2pm BST, the live chat will consider the various ways in which higher education can become – and is becoming – more open. We will consider what the challenges ahead might be and what policy shifts, as well as cultural shifts are needed.

Guardian Q&As or live chats are always informal and the aim is to share knowledge, experience and allow us to curate a ‘best bits’ full of interesting tips/links on the given subject from our network and for our network.

Lunchtime webinars

ManYang10 June 2011

We are going to run three lunchtime webinars during June and July, all on Thursdays from 1.00pm to 2.00pm.

The first webinar will be on 23 June, and is focused on rights and licensing issues in supporting OER in an institution. The second webinar on 7 July is designed for academic developers and those responsible for accreditation schemes. The third webinar on 21 July will target individuals who are interested in seeking HEA accreditation.

Each session will begin with a couple of short presentations from the project team to introduce the topic, and lead to a series of questions and discussion from the participants.

The web link to the sessions will be posted here near the event.

Dissemination plan

We are now planning our project dissemination over the next two months. The major event is the CPD4HE workshop which will target resource users and focus on research, values and digital literacy. The date of the workshop is now confirmed on 12th July 2011. We have invited David Kernohan from JISC to give a presentation at the event. An outline of the programme will follow soon.

With the support from HEA/JISC, we are also planning three lunchtime webinars targeting three groups of audiences: educational developers and programme providers, academics and individuals taking accreditation, and librarians. Date and title of each webinar will be announced when finalised.

OER@UCL@TLN

JaneHughes31 March 2011

We enjoyed our internal OER event yesterday –  a joint effort between the CPD4HE and DHOER teams, and part of the UCL Teaching & Learning Network (TLN) programme.

Ulrich Tiedau and I gave a short introduction to OER and the UKOER programme. This was followed by contributions from Simon Mahoney (DHOER) and June Hedges, Man Yang and Rosalind Duhs (CPD4HE).

Between us, we covered individual and institutional motivations for releasing and using OERs, IPR and Risk, the processes involved in developing and releasing OERs and the issues we have encountered in our different roles (teaching, technical development, licensing).

We also formally launched the OER@UCL website.
