The UK HEA Subject Centre for Bioscience is taking part in a pilot programme for the release of Open Educational Resources (OER) following a successful bid for £250,000 from HEFCE/JISC/HEA as part of the subject strand.
By working in partnership with the Academy, professional bodies and insitutions we will identify the issues and problems for developing OER in the Biosciences. We have selected a broad sample of learning and teaching materials which we believe are representative of the types of resource available to support practical work in many Bioscience disciplines, which also illustrate a range of approaches. These will become 'An Interactive Laboratory and Fieldwork Manual for the Biosciences' and made available through links on our project site and numerous services including the forthcoming JorumOpen. Although these are targeted towards level 1 practical classes we expect components to be useful for various levels.
The Centre will use its networks and contacts to promote the use of OER and explore the issues of the potential adopters to inform the post-pilot programme...
