Where do we go from here? Join us at a workshop exploring the potential next steps in repository design and the use of Open Educational Resources.

The project team behind the LanguageBox and the HumBox are exploring where we might go from here: how can resources be re-mixed and re-used effectively? What are the changing expectations and practice of OER sharers? What further technical, cultural and philosophical developments do we need to make the most of the opportunities that OERs offer us?

This workshop will be of interest to practitioners in HE who have already begun to share their teaching and resources openly online or to use Open Educational Resources in their teaching. Attendees may already have worked with the LLAS team on the HumBox project or the Faroes (LanguageBox) project.

Join us – use your knowledge and experience of sharing resources to help shape how we approach the future of Open Educational Resources in Higher Education.
