Workshop description

Openness is a key concern in recent times in higher education; experiences such as open access, open educational resources, massive online courses, etc. are ‘hot topics’ globally but also increasingly in the South. Open Educational Practices (OEP) move the focus from the design, development and access to open educational resources (OER) to the use of those resources within pedagogical practices. This seminar will report back on the 2016 OER pilot project at CPUT, in which lecturers received funding to develop OERs. After a short overview on current literature on OER and OEP, two of the OER pilots, Bronwyn Swartz, a lecturer in Engineering, and Janine Lockhart from the Library will reflect on their experiences in taking part in this project.  This seminar will be of particular interest to colleagues who are interested in applying for funding in the 2017 round of OER projects.
