This week’s webinar focuses on effective learning resources and aims to offer a range of opinions and perspectives on the following key questions:
- What do we mean by ‘engaging and effective learning materials’?
- How do we find them and how do we evaluate them?
- If we cannot find ‘ready-made’ materials to suit our purpose then how do we best create/assemble/stitch together materials to plug the gap(s)?
- What are the pros and cons of using OERs and what do we need to know about them to use them effectively (e.g. licensing and copyright issues)?
After a brief introduction, there will be four 10-minute responses, each of which will respond to some or all of these questions and identify important issues for all staff who want to make more effective use of the growing range of online learning resources. Our presenters are (in order of presentation): Peter Hartley, Sarah Currier, David Walker and Panos Vlachopoulos, and finally Chris Pegler. We will then have some time for questions and discussion.
