CDE seminar: The Role of Open Access and OERs within Distance Education

CENTRE FOR DISTANCE EDUCATION SEMINAR >>
The Role of Open Access and OERs within Distance Education

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Open AccessThis first CDE lunchtime seminar of the academic year explored the role of Open Access (Licensing and Publishing) and Open Educational Resources (OERs) within Distance Education, focusing on the context of the University of London International Programmes.   It featured presentations by two CDE Fellows, Stylianos Hatzipanagos (Senior Lecturer in Technology Enhanced Learning, Kings College London) and Jon Gregson (Head of Knowledge Services, Institute of Development Studies), to set out some of the issues and opportunities.  There then followed an interactive session where participants shared their thoughts and experiences in groups and plenary.

The aim of the event was to raise awareness and understanding of what is possible, and identify next steps and actions that could be taken to improving our use of open access materials, including OERs, both within the University of London International Programmes and generally within the HE sector.
