Workshop : OTTER Project Team



This workshop focuses on reward and recognition for academic staff for making teaching materials freely available as Open Educational Resources. Over the past few years there has been a dramatic increase in the number of Open Access repositories within the UK higher education sector. Studies have shown that some academics, driven by altruistic motives, are willing to make their teaching materials freely available for re-use. Concern however still remains regarding appropriate reward and recognition for staff. In this workshop we will explore the question “what’s in for me?” with regard to staff contributions of Open Educational Resources.
