In association with JISC, the Higher Education Academy are pleased to invite the submission of abstracts for case studies on a range of topics pertaining to Open Educational Resources including public engagement. Funding has been provided by the Higher Education Funding Council for England to offer grants of £2,000 for the production of evidence-informed studies on the theme of pedagogical development from OER practice.
In these case studies, individuals or teams from higher education in England are invited to share their experiences of OER practice, situate these within the wider context of OER and offer a model of best practice for the higher education sector.
The OER case study series aims to create high quality, publishable, open material to support, inform and guide the HE sector in the creation, use and re-use of Open Educational Resources under the following topics:
- OER and student as producer
- OER and student satisfaction
- OER and staff development
- OER and teaching quality
- OER and distance learning
- OER and public engagement
- Changing the OER culture of your institution
- Barriers to OER
To be considered for funding to contribute to this series, please complete an OER case studies proposal form and send it as an e-mail attachment to: firstname.lastname@example.org by 9 December 2011.
If you would like to discuss your study before submitting a proposal, please contact: email@example.com.
