Tuesday August 28th 2012
12.30 - 2pm Room 24.203
All campuses can videoconference to this room – register with kate_wilson@uow.edu.au if you are participating from another campus

OER: Open Educational Resources
 
OERuni: A philanthropic collaboration which UOW has joined to provide free open degrees to learners anywhere in the world.
At this forum, UOW staff will provide snapshots of their current work in the open and their thoughts about future developments. Come find out that there is more to open learning than MIT Open Courseware, more to open learning than MOOCs (come find out what a MOOC is!), more to open learning than just content.
Plus international guest speaker, Prof Wayne Mackintosh will describe OERuni, a world first open initiative, in his talk titled:
The OER university network: a return to the core values of the academy

Professor Wayne Mackintosh is the founding director of the OER Foundation and holds the Commonwealth of Learning Chair in OER at Otago Polytechnic.
He is coordinating the establishment of the OER University, an international innovation partnership which aims to provide free learning opportunities for all students worldwide with pathways for OER learners to achieve credible credentials. Wayne is also director of the International Centre for Open Education at Otago Polytechnic in New Zealand. Wayne is a strategy innovator with a passion for making educational futures happen.
