The purpose of this Learnline unit is to provide CDU staff with information and experience in finding, repurposing, using and sharing open educational resources (OER) in your teaching practice. You can choose which modules you are interested in and you can come back at any time to access the "just in time" learning throughout the year.
Within this unit you are invited to join the "CDU OER Interest Group" to connect with others who are interested in progressing the use and creation of OER at CDU.
You will need to be logged into Learnline to access this unit: https://online.cdu.edu.au/ultra/courses/_38924_1/cl/outline
The National Copyright Unit (NCU), with help from the Australian Government Open Access and Licensing Framework (AusGOAL), has produced an Open Educational Resources (OER) Toolkit for Teachers, Curriculum and eLearning Developers. This toolkit is to help teachers, schools, curriculum writers and e-learning areas in understanding OER's and also how to create them.
If sharing an original work that you have created, this will need to be done in line with CDU policies and practices.
Whilst student generated OER is encouraged, agreements will need to be in place if content is to be reused because the University does not assert ownership of intellectual property created by students. Refer to the Intellectual Property Policy above.
