Using OER and OEP for Teaching and Learning

Description

The potential benefits of using open educational resources and practices (OER and OEP) in higher education include improving access, furthering equity and enhancing teaching, learning and assessment. The National Forum supports the use of OER and OEP in a range of ways (see www.teachingandlearning.ie/open).

Benefit of this resource and how to make the best use of it

This webinar will be helpful to staff across the sector who are interested in further exploring and supporting the use of OER and OEP in their own contexts. The webinar will share a range of materials and guidance designed to build capacity in OER and OEP in Irish higher education and will invite conversation and feedback. Topics to be covered include: – Basic principles of OER and OEP and the importance of open in the digital age – Finding relevant, quality OER for use and/or adaptation for teaching and learning – Choosing and assigning an appropriate open licence for an educational resource you have created – Exploring the concepts of OEP and open pedagogy – All the resources and approaches shared will form the basis of a forthcoming (early 2022) National – Forum open course. The webinar will be facilitated by the developers of the open course, a cross-institutional team with a wide range of open education experience:

The Toolkit includes an introduction to generative AI and lexicon of terms, guidelines for ethical use, recommended adjustments to common modes of assessment to mitigate against the potential risk of unethical use, and discipline-specific case studies of good practice that share innovative forms of learning, teaching and/or assessment.

This publication will be a helpful, collaborative resource to all teaching staff at and beyond TUS. It may also generate further ideas for improving practice and enhancing student engagement. This first compendium has led to further publications where ‘pedagogical communities of practice’ continue to share our knowledge.

The OER Recommendation aims to assist Member States to support the development and sharing of openly licensed learning and teaching materials, benefiting students, teachers, and researchers worldwide. It supports the creation, use and adaptation of inclusive and quality OER, and facilitates international cooperation in this field through five Action Areas, namely (i) building the capacity of stakeholders to create, access, re-use, adapt and redistribute OER; (ii) developing supportive policy; (iii) encouraging inclusive and equitable quality OER; (iv) nurturing the creation of sustainability models for OER, and (v) facilitating international cooperation.
