Knowledge Transfer & Enterprise Champion 2012
At the heart of the OER movement lies “the simple and powerful idea that the world’s knowledge is a public good and that technology in general and the World Wide Web in particular provide an extraordinary opportunity for everyone to share, use, and reuse that knowledge” (Smith, Casserly 2008: 10). UCL, being at the forefront of the OA movement, in June 2009 adopted a far-reaching and progressive Open Access policy, mandating the deposit of all research outputs into its institutional OA repository Discovery. It did so as one of the first and most prestigious universities in the UK and, according to the Times Higher, only 35th university in the world. UCL academics, including the writer of these lines, have been involved in JISC’s and the HE Academy’s UKOER programme since its pilot phase in 2009/10, leading in March 2011 to the launch of a new institutional top-level directory website OER@UCL, in a first step pulling together information from all four UCL-based UKOER projects. Still, an institution-wide embracing of ‘Openness’ for educational resources does not yet match UCL’s embracing of Open Access in research. My proposal as KT&E champion is to further OER at UCL, provide advice and support to colleagues, and engage with UCL audiences in- and outside of academia.
