Open educational resources - expensive extra or core commitment?

A session at JISC Conference 2011

Tuesday 15th March, 2011

11:30am to 12:30pm

Via Open Educational Resources (OER) academics and institutions release their learning materials for anyone to reuse for free. However there are costs involved in making OER possible, in time if not money.

In an environment where funding is tight can we justify supporting OER release as an institutional or personal priority?

In this session we will look at the benefits and effects of involvement in OER that institutions and individuals have experienced. We’ll look at what they are getting out of it, and why.
