Summer Series: Open education in the curriculum
September 1 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Creating and using open educational resources is an important way to ensure longevity of access to course materials, and this can benefit staff, students, in all learning environments whether on campus, online, or hybrid.
In this information session we will look at the ways in which open educational practices and open educational resources are being used across the university and the benefits this provides including how it can:
- make a significant contribution to diversifying the curriculum
- improving digital skills for both staff and students.
- engage students in the co-creation of their own learning experiences, and to my mind, this is one of the most powerful affordances of open education.
- provide legacy and impact that can be reused and disseminated by other communities and organisations.
- create concrete examples of student skills and knowledge towards their professional careers.
This session will be run by Lorna Campbell. Lorna has almost twenty years of experience working in education technology and manages the OER Service within Information Services at the University of Edinburgh.
This will be delivered solely online via Collaborate. Attendee’s should make themselves aware of the best practise advice from Collaborate before joining the session: Collaborate Session Best Practices
