About this Event

This Open Scholarship Café, co-presented by the Library at NUI Galway and the Open Scholarship Community Galway will focus on the project "Create and publish your own OERs".

Thanks to funding from the NUI Galway Student Projects Fund our project has opened a Grant Scheme that encourages support staff and students to create or remix Open Educational Resources (OER). The goal of the OER Grant Scheme is to encourage instructor experimentation and innovation in finding new, better, and less costly ways to deliver learning materials to their students through open educational resources in NUI Galway classrooms and research.

This short session will outline how the Grant Scheme works and will deal with your questions on the project and the Grants.

OER are free high-quality resources that can be easily used in your own teaching practice. Existing OER can be changed - remixed - to better suit your needs.

Good to know: The OER Project at NUI Galway has purchased a subscription to PressBooks, an OER tool that will not only help users make such tailored changes, but also potentially create open resources from scratch, including open textbooks.

So if you have an idea about creating or remixing an OER for your course or your outreach programme join us!
