OER (Open Educational Resources)
The main responsibility for the coordination of this intellectual output is on University of Hildesheim
Output Description
Open Educational Resources (OER) for EINFOSE will offer an extraordinary opportunity for all participants to share, use, and reuse knowledge. As they also demonstrate great potential as a mechanism for instructional innovation, our OERs intend to help in fostering the networks of teachers and learners with a goal to share best practices. Another important goal of OERs organised through EINFOSE Platform is to foster deeper learning by: mastering academic content (represented by four basic courses that will prepare students for graduate level study in IS);  critical thinking and problem solving (collecting and interpreting data to understand the interdependence of ICT and digital society), working in collaboration (work in a team to design, build, and monitor the products that will allow better communicate of their own thoughts and ideas), effective communication (presenting data and conclusions in writing and to an audience via video steaming and in classroom) and learning how to monitor and direct one’s own learning (using teacher feedback, test results, and reflection to guide future learning and improve learning habits). OERs for EINFOSE will consist of four full courses, and will include course materials, modules, and textbooks, streaming videos, tests, gaming tools and other tools and materials that are used to support effective access to knowledge.
The main responsibility for the coordination of this intellectual output is on the U of Graz. The work on OERs will be led by partner teams and will also include other colleagues whose experience might help in improving the quality of materials:
The design and translations of OERS. The preparations of the OERs will be divided into three phases: a phase before the first summer school (A1), a phase before the second summer school (A2) and the final phase before the project end (A3). The outcomes will be the first version, the second version and the final version of OERs for four courses available in English and in national languages that are spoken at the partner institutions.
1. Achievements and Advances in Information Science (Osijek, Pisa, Ljubljana, Hildesheim) - English, Croatian, Italian, Slovenian, German;
2. Research Methodology in Information Science (Ankara, Ljubljana, Boras, Barcelona) - English, Turkish, Slovenian, Swedish, Spanish;
3. Principles of Information Seeking and Retrieval (Graz, Ankara, Barcelona, Hildesheim) - English,  German, Turkish, Spanish;
4. Evaluation of Information Services (Osijek, Graz, Pisa, Boras) - English, Croatian, German, Italian, Swedish.
At least one additional language will be available for each OER in the second phase (A4), and one more before the project end. (A5)
OERs will be offered to participating students and teachers as a part of blended mobility activities (during in situ summer schools and online continuation).
All OERs will be designed to allow for modifications and introduction of new topics considering the IS field is challenged with constant changes in the digital environment. The OERs will be monitor during the first and second phase by using the criteria developed for evaluation of the OERs (e.g. dimensions of technical features, usability, content and pedagogical approaches).
The students satisfaction feedback will be collected and recorded anonymously in accordance with the data protection regulations. An anonymous learner feedback system will be installed throughout the lifecycle of the OERs to gain qualitative information (A6).
