      Open Educational Resources in Languages
      Date: 1 June 2012
      Start Time: 09:30 am
      Location/venue: Harrington Building, University of Central Lancashire, Preston, Lancashire, UK, PR1 2HE
      This event is being hosted as part of the Higher Education Academy's OER Workshop and Seminar Series
      Information about the event:

      This event will provide language educators with a thorough overview of open educational resources (OERs) in their discipline by combining a number of perspectives, including staff development, student production, teaching quality and organizational challenges. It is aimed at language educators with no previous experience of the field and will present them with opportunities to reflect on the opportunities as well as the barriers that often accompany the use of OERs. Participants will be introduced to examples of good practice and have the opportunity to network with a range of presenters with experience of designing and implementing OER projects specifically in a language context. It is anticipated that the format of the event will include interactive sessions combining both theory and practice in four main areas of engagement:
      Engaging Institutions: Changing the OER Culture in your Institution
      Engaging Language Educators: OERs and Staff Development
      Engaging Language Students: OERs and the Student as Producer
      Engaging Quality Assurance: OERs and Teaching Quality
