28 Mar 2012
A team at the University of Brighton Faculty of Arts are working on a project to develop the potential of open educational resources (OERs) and open educational practices in art, design and media subjects.
OERs are defined as teaching and learning materials freely available online for teachers, students, or self-learners to use. Examples include full courses, modules and lectures.
The ARTS-OER project aims to:
The expected outcome is a strategy for the development of open educational practice in the faculty with benefits including opportunities to showcase teaching and learning resources produced by staff and students, opportunities for cross and inter-institutional collaboration, and the development of a growing and sustainable collection of learning resources and digital assets.
The long-term rewards of participation in the project are a development of the faculty’s online profile and networking capacity, providing further opportunities in bolstering student engagement and future recruitment.
The project team consists of Sarah Atkinson, principal lecturer in Broadcast Media, Adam Bailey, learning technology adviser, Debbie Flint, academic developer at the Art, Design and Media Subject Centre and project manager Stephen Mallinder.
