UKOLN Seminar: OSTRICH (OER Sustainability through Teaching & Research Innovation Cascading across HEIs)
Thursday, April 14, 2011 at 2:00 PM - Tuesday, May 17, 2011 at 3:30 PM (BST)
Bath, United Kingdom
Title: OSTRICH (OER Sustainability through Teaching & Research Innovation Cascading across HEIs)
Speakers: Vic Jenkins and Alex Lydiate, LTEO, University of Bath
OSTRICH is a year-long JISC-funded project led by the Beyond Distance Research Alliance at the University of Leicester. The project explores the transfer and cascade of the key outcomes of a previous institutional OER pilot project at Leicester (OTTER) to two partner institutions (University of Bath and University of Derby).
The progress of the OSTRICH project so far at the University of Bath will be described by Vic Jenkins (Learning Technologist in the Learning and Teaching Enhancement Office). This will include highlights and challenges encountered, discussions around IPR for learning and teaching resources, and the sustainability of processes for managing the release of OERs on an institutional basis.
Alex Lydiate (Educational Software and Systems Developer) will present an overview of the design of the Drupal-based OSTRICH distributed repository and the rationale behind it. This will include an outline of the proposed strategy for representing the OSTRICH OER records on the Web.
Note that the slides are available.
In addition to intend to provide a live video stream of the seminar, probably using the UStream video streaming service.
Further information will be provided on Twitter using the #ukolnseminar tag. In addition the ukolnseminar201104 Tinychat facility (requires Flash) the Chatzy facility will be used to allow remote participants to ask questions.
