Good morning everyone,
Over the last six months the OERu Course Quality Working Group has been progressing two main outcomes, and now we’d like to call for much broader help in small activities. If you would like to help, this means you can commit to small, compartmentalised activities that won’t take a lot of time, but will help the team greatly.
The aim of the Working Group is to construct (i) a Quality Review Tool that will help to not only review existing OERu courses, but also guide the creation of new courses in conjunction with the Style Guide, and (ii) locate examples of good practice within existing courses that demonstrate how criteria in the Quality Review Tool can be met. The latter is particularly exciting as we have the opportunity to celebrate good practice, and actively learn from each other.
At this stage, the team will be applying a first-phase review to PM101. If you would like to support this process, please do post below. I wouldn’t imagine the process would take longer than three to four hours, and would involve applying the current tool to the course, and annotating the review tool for iterative development. Of course, you’d be most welcome to attend any of the Working Group meetings too!
Our aim is to have a completed document ready for the 2018 International Partners Meeting.
I do hope to hear back from some of our members soon.
