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, IPR and Licensing Workshop

ManYang26 November 2010

OER IPR Support LogoThree members of the project team attended the “Before You Start: OER, IPR and Licensing Workshop” which was held at UCL on 24th November.

Led by two members of the OER IPR Support Project Team, the workshop provided an overview of copyright and other IPR issues. It also covered the different types of Creative Commons licences, the obligations to JISC and how we can embed good IPR practice into existing processes.

I found the workshop very helpful. For those who couldn’t attend, here is the link to OER IPR Support where more information and resources can be obtained:

HEA workshop for OMAC projects

JaneHughes26 November 2010

This workshop on Tuesday 23 was an opportunity to find out about other OER projects in our strand and to hear the latest on the UK Professional Standards Framework (PSF) from the HEA. We also found out that the consultation on the new PSF is due to begin this week.
One good outcome of the meeting was that the HEA agreed to produce a set of tags for the UKPSF standards, core knowlege, activities and values. If we all use these tags it should help potential users identify useful resources.
