Hello, myself and Melissa Highton will be talking about our OER Impact project for JISC and OER activity in general around the University of Oxford. The Impact project (http://www.jisc.ac.uk/whatwedo/programmes/elearning/oer2/oerimpact.aspx) is investigating the academic use/reuse of OER.
I'm very interested in stories of the use/reuse of OER and how they fit in the broad spectrum of online resource use. To help position the conversations we are having with people we have developed a 'map' of use/reuse: http://oerblog.conted.ox.ac.uk/?p=1 which you might find helpful?
Our workshop will be looking at the use/reuse side of the OER coin and at what it means form an institution to be 'open'. Where does openness take pace around your institution and what form does it take?
