Open Educational Resources for Educational Developers Launched Today!

The HEA/JISC-funded ‘Academic Practice in Context’ project has today released its full set of materials for free use under a Creative Commons licence. The materials feature the equivalent of 300 study hours worth of Masters Level resources intended to aid educational developers in the design and delivery of PGCert courses and professional development workshops.

Presented mainly as Word documents and PowerPoint files, the materials are flexible and adaptable. They have been produced by experienced educational developers with input and feedback from colleagues nationally and internationally. The materials are categorised under 8 themes including feedback, learning spaces, e-learning and values, and are mapped to the UKPSF for ease of use by accredited programmes; they are designed to elicit dialogue and reflection on disciplinary ways of thinking and practising. The resources are hosted by the University of Bath and can be accessed via the project blog and JORUM (keyword: discthink)
