Developing a framework to support newbie content makers and sharers
JISC ReProduce programme: 20 funded projects to test assumptions around reusing and repurposing of digital content
- case studies of cultural issues around the recreation of content
- main barrier to sharing is perceived complexity of actual practice
- re-purposing process takes longer than anticipated
Emerging open content literacy: a framework to support engagement with open content, acquisition of new skills and strategies and to manage the messiness and iterative nature of digital content creation.
Lindsey is from Edge Hill University’s SOLSTICE CETL. She pointed out that there are multiple definitions mostly variants on the OERCommons definition. Lessons from previous work on reuse showed gaps in local knowledge and also the knowledge in the sector.
- Is it easier to create from new?
- Skills gaps
- New roles – need a team
- Good v good enough
- Infrastructure – no local open repository
The work produced two outputs after the project completed. A Professional Development framework (linked to HEA levels), and a framework for Open Content Literacy. The PD framework maps activities that might happen to the recognition that it might bring.
A survey carried out by a SOLSTICE fellow (Peter Reed) showed a relatively low awareness of OER (31%) (from relatively expert users). There is also a relatively low level of people asking permission to use (~49%) – which is lower than for face-to-face content. However practically everyone (98%) would reuse relevant digital content.
A draft framework for open content literacy was distributed that Lindsey is seeking collaborators to work on.
