Congratulations to our 2022 OER grant recipients
Deakin students love OERs, and the library is always working with academics and unit chairs to make as much use of them as we can.
Recently, applications were called for the Open Educational Resources Grant Program 2022 to support the use of OERs in units and courses. The response was amazing, and we are excited to congratulate those now involved in the program:
- Rebecca Gerrett-Magee (NIKERI)
- Sagarika Mishra (Business and Law)
- Rebecca Cairns (Arts and Education)
- Ramon Lopez Castellano (Arts and Education)
- Saba Gharehdash (Science, Engineering and Built Environment)
- Ellen Moon (Science, Engineering and Built Environment)
- Danielle Hitch (Health)
- Kannan Thuraisamy (Business and Law)
Open Educational Resources (OERs) are educational materials that are made available under an open licence. They can be used and shared at no cost. Students can freely access the materials and retain their own copies, which makes them some of the most useful and valuable resources around. Depending on the licence of the resource, they can even be adapted to specifically support a unit or course. OERs include textbooks, simulations, quizzes and other formats.
As part of the program, the project teams will be able to attend training on OERs and participate in sessions to further our practical understanding of using OERs in units.
Congratulations to the successful applicants!
Contact Angie Williamson for more details or if you would like to participate in the OER Community of practice.
