Short Course "Accessing Free Resources for your Teaching"

Open Educational Resources (OERs) are learning and research materials that reside in the public domain.  Lecturers may select from a growing array of OERs, edit them as they wish and share with students. OER repositories include educational videos, reports, case studies and textbooks.  Over a fortnight, this self-paced PD allows participants to consider a range of business education OERs and the potential benefit they may offer FBE students.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this workshop, participants should be able to:

  • Consider OERs from a variety of sources
  • Evaluate the appropriateness of an OER for their teaching
  • Recognise how and OER can be further customised for use within their teaching
