OER@UCL

uczajah11 October 2010

We have come up with the idea of having a UCL top level web page about OER – a space that will show internal and external visitors a snapshot of OER activity in the institution. it might also be a focus as we develop our institutional position on OER.

It’s been agreed that oer@ucl can be linked from the main UCL Teaching and Learning web pages.
Please contribute URLs for OER projects and related activity plus suggestions about other content. We hope to make this web page live within a couple of weeks.

First Programme Meeting

uczajah11 October 2010

It was great to find out about other Phase 2 projects, learn more about Phase 1 outcomes and the support available to us through the programme.

The OER IPR team, Web2Rights offers advice and has created resources to help deal with IPR and licensing issues – eg an interactive Licensing Decision Tool and Copyright Tool. JISCLegal is also there to help. A review of Creative Commons licensing options was very helpful, and the presentation on technical considerations was reassuring as well as interesting.

Finally, I was very pleased to make contact with other project representatives, especially with Jane Secker, project manager of DELILA. We agreed to stay in touch and to work together on issues of common interest. Another useful contact was Richard Atfield, whose project Open for Business is developing a grid to help map resources to the UK PSF.

Up and running with a new name

uczajah11 October 2010

At our first project meeting we agreed to change the project name (the working title for the proposal was OpenPSF). We are now CPD4HE, with the subtitle, Open Resources on HE Teaching & Learning.  We are working on our draft project plan and looking forward to the first Programme Meeting.
