Review and Endorsement of OERs by Graduate-Recruiting Employers

Review and Endorsement of OERs by Graduate-Recruiting Employers

Description

Research on review and endorsement of Open Educational Resources (OERs) is being conducted using HumBox resources as part of an Open University SCORE Fellowship Project. The aims of this project, led by Antonio Martinez-Arboleda at the University of Leeds, are to explore and develop a feasible model for employer engagement in OERs and to add extra value to existing and future OERs, hence reinforcing our existing Communities of Practice and encouraging high-quality open content publication and re-use. In particular, the project will look at ways of facilitating the review and endorsement of OERs by graduate-recruiting employers in the HumBox, where a vast range of Arts and Humanities OERs of all levels of granularity have been uploaded and shared by an increasing number of practitioners. In connection with this project, Antonio is interested in proposing a more dynamic, case-based and multilateral approach to employability in the area of Arts in UK HE. In this respect, the review and endorsement of OERs by employers can play a crucial role in this transformation. This project will build on the work which is already being done in the area of employers’ engagement in OERs and will consider the different review and endorsement tools introduced by key OERs repositories. If you are interested in having some of your resources reviewed or endorsed by employers or simply finding out more about this project, please contact Antonio Martínez-Arboleda at sllama@leeds.ac.uk
