Thursday, 1 September 2011 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm


John Goodsell Seminar Room LG29

Open Educational Resources: Creation, Management and Evaluation presented by Dr. Chris Tisdell, School of Mathematics and Statistics.

The rationale of Open Educational Resources (OER) is to "champion the sharing of knowledge worldwide to increase human intellectual capacity" (UNESCO, 2004).

Chris Tisdell is Senior Lecturer in Applied Mathematics and a YouTube Partner in Education (Australia).

Chris will discuss his experience with OER in mathematics over the past 3 years and give examples of how his OER were created, managed and evaluated. 

Applied Mathematics resources take the form of online learning videos together with accompanying materials, and are freely shared via the website to local students and to learners worldwide.

Why do this, what is the impact and how does this approach align with formal classes? Something is definitely happening here. Come along and join the discussion.
