This week the project team were engaged with a number of important events at the University. On Wednesday we were involved with the Technology Enhanced Learning showcase. We delivered a presentation offering an overview of the four OER projects that Plymouth has hosted and the range of resources that they have made available under open licence:
Project Poster: Learning from WOeRK
The information seemed to be well received and there was perhaps a little surprise at how much was available.
We followed this initial session with an employer focused workshop as part of the launch of the collection (http://cpdoer.net/collections). This mainly involved members of the University with employer facing roles and the Students Union training team. Placement staff could clearly see the benefits of directing placement providers to the resources and the Students Union were excited about using the resourcesto support their own management and sabbatical training.
