EVENT - Using OERs in HE in FE: Degrees of edupunk?
University Centre at Blackburn College
11 June 2012

The aim of the workshop is to increase delegates’ awareness of OERs and their use in HE in FE. The lack of lecturer time is recognised as a major barrier impeding the use of OERs and therefore the workshop’s interactive nature will provide opportunities for direct engagement with a variety of resources. The event will demonstrate how such resources have been deployed in HE in FE and will make suggestions as to how such initiatives can be effectively recorded. The workshop also intends to encourage pedagogical reflection on the utility of OERs for the delivery of HE in FE.
