Sustaining OER Activity – A SCORE event at The Open University

On 17 Nov, the SCORE people at the OU will be hosting an event looking at the past, present and future of OER activity, and what it will take for all of us involved in OERs to make this activity sustainable.   This is an important question. David Wiley may have given a clue to the answer in his recent keynote address (see http://bit.ly/rliovG). He emphasised the importance of making openness work for our own institutions. This isn’t how all OER projects work – many of them have been more outward-facing – although, oddly, without any defined audience other than a hoped-for mass of prospective students. So… a shift towards meeting existing institutional needs via open practices would be something of a paradigm shift – and would, I think, make our OER activity more self-sustaining.
