DELILA Dissemination event: One day event for developers of information and digital literacy teaching and learning material

OERs (Open Educational Resources) are a growing area of interest, both in the UK and internationally, and a community of practice for librarians and educational technologists to share ideas and resources in re-using and re-purposing information literacy learning objects has emerged. The CDE hosted a DELILA Dissemination event on 26 July 2011 in Senate house, a day of talks and a workshop to exchange ideas and good practice and to experiment with existing information literacy and digital literacy OERs.

The workshop section of the day provided the chance to work with others and investigate existing OERs and the steps taken to create them. There was also a poster session to promote existing OER projects.  Details of the four presentations conducted can be seen below, including audio podcasts, presentation slides and other

The event was run by DELILA (Delivering Educators’ Learning and Information Literacy for Accreditation), a JISC/HEA funded project looking at turning existing learning objects into OERs and embedding them in existing PGCerts.  More information can be found at
