ISKME's Open Educational Practice Rubric

(View Complete Item Description)

This rubric defines a set of open educational practices that help educators to advance a classroom and school culture of open education and to advocate for the potential benefits of open educational resources (OER) in the context of continuous improvement. The rubric is intended to guide educator practice in working with OER to ensure that every student has the opportunity to engage in learning effectively. The rubric supports educators in accessing, curating, evaluating, and adapting OER in response to students’ particular needs, interests, and contexts, to author and share original or remixed resources, and to disseminate approaches to the implementation of those resources for future OER users to benefit from.

Creating OER (Postcard format for Higher Education)

(View Complete Item Description)

Originally designed by Alexander Schnücker für Arbeitsstelle Hochschuldidaktik der Universität Siegen, these postcard-sized resources have been translated into English, and contextualised for Australia. The cards are broken into Theory, Practice, Examples, and Resources, and introduce OER to new practitioners whilst also providing examples and tools for anyone to use. This resource is used to raise staff awareness, to act as a 'ready reference' for practitioners, and as an aid for OER workshops designed to engage staff with OER in their discipline. Please note that this record contains the final version of the cards, and a .zip package with editable files to make it easier for remix.
