Introducing the OER Professional Development Project

Open education resources (OER) and accompanying open education practices (OEP), are changing the education landscape. To take on OER-related roles and issues, we need to learn the language and culture of open education and develop expertise in areas such as open licensing, copyright, e-learning, and knowledge about OER technologies and standards.

The Open Educational Resources Professional Development Program project is addressing the OER Professional Development needs of higher education institutions.

The project aims to:

  1. Develop a proposal for an Open Educational Resource professional development program.
  2. Develop and implement an Open Educational Resource professional development program.

The project is led by Marion Slawson (Federation University) and consists of the following team members: Sarah Howard (QUT), Kylie Tran (University of Melbourne), Anne Hawkins (Flinders University), Kate McVey (University of Western Australia) and Nikki Andersen (University of Southern Queensland).

The below video outlines the project’s team current progress.

More information on the Open Educational Resources Professional Development Program project can be found in the project brief (PDF).
