Adopting OER models at a national level. The experience of Wales (Salt Lake City )

Open Education 2013 Conference

As a small agile nation Wales has to maximise resources to the benefit of the Welsh population, economy, and rest of the world. This seminar will explore how all of the universities in Wales (9) worked collaboratively to develop the concept of Wales as an OER nation for higher education and how they were able to influence government policy.

This led to the government agreeing to support a statement of intent regarding the future development of OER across the nation. It will also describe some of the challenges and how they were overcome at political, institutional and individual levels and the emerging recognition of the importance of open educational practice in academic practice and delivery
