OER the Pros and Cons

  1. 1. Open Educational Resources: aka OER The Pros and Cons By Gina Hatcher
  2. 2. Major Benefits…the Pros • Opens access to higher education to all • Broadens the access to many reputable quality institutions such as: • Yale • Harvard • John Hopkins…. to name a few • Reduces the cost to students, especially in books and supplemental learning materials Open Educational Resources aka OER; The Pros and Cons by Gina Hatcher
  3. 3. Other Benefits • Open licensing maximizes the equitable sharing of materials to the benefit of both the creators and recipients of the resources • Broadens the opportunities for scholarship and recognition among educators and researchers worldwide Open Educational Resources aka OER; The Pros and Cons by Gina Hatcher
  4. 4. The Challenges…the Cons • Scope of Subject Matter and Academic disciplines are limited • All areas of higher education are not yet included such as Community and Technical College Professional and Technical subjects • Considering “open access” is the hallmark of these institutions, OER is a reasonable fit • Quality Assurance • Keeping material current and updated is expensive and requires a consistent and systematic approach. No such protocol currently exists in OER. • Technological changes, digitalization of materials and life cycle of information is constantly changing Open Educational Resources aka OER; The Pros and Cons by Gina Hatcher
  5. 5. More Challenges • Accessibility---issues in terms of universally available in formats to students with special needs at this point is either non-existent, or very limited. • OER is not universally understood or desired by many • It requires a new paradigm of the role of higher education • It redefines ownership of intellectual property • It expands the alternatives to traditional copyright protection. • Sustainability • Funding resources that were available to jumpstart the movement will eventually end. Their currently no long term plan in place to take over when current funding sources are exhausted. Open Educational Resources aka OER; The Pros and Cons by Gina Hatcher
  6. 6. The Results • OER has a viable place in the 21st century educational arena. Only 10 years in existence, it has made significant progress, but has a long way to go before yet in being firmly established and accepted. • It is a paradigm shift in every respect, but the 21st century in itself is a paradigm shift in so many ways in how we live, communicate, politic…and of course…educate.
