Defining OEP
Benefits of OEP
Widening access
Building communities of practice
Time saving

No policy
Lack of senior-level buy in
Content ownership issues
Poor design
Access issues
“Encourage the development of user-friendly tools to locate and retrieve OER that are specific and relevant to particular needs. “ (UNESCO, 2012)
Repositories must improve potential to SEARCH, SHARE, REUSE, COLLABORATE
Lack of understanding of benefits
Lack of peer support
No reward
Cultural differences

Employment of 'openness'
“...the new wave of policy and advocacy initiatives focus on transparency enabled by the adoption of open educational practices." (Alevizou, 2012)
“The basic policy position... can be summed up very easily: A free license like CC BY or CC BY-SA... should be adopted for all publicly funded educational content." (EOEPP, 2013)
Policy should:
- legitimise practice
- be clear, knowable, and public
- contribute to awareness and mainstreaming
Staff development
Signpost supporting communities
OEP embedded in teaching qualifications
Leo Havemann, Birkbeck. @leohavemann
