Creating a network for sharing information literacy Open Educational Resources
The CILIP Information Literacy group are delighted to be partnering with UNESCO to collaborate on a new project to share information literacy open educational resources in the UK. Jane Secker (LSE) and Nancy Graham (University of Birmingham) are representing the group. With this aim we conducted a short survey of librarians to gather information about the OER collections they currently use and to identify people interested in working on the project either in the UK or elsewhere in the world.
We held an event at the University of Birmingham on 14th August and got together a group of interested librarians. We now have set up a mailing list if you are interested and would like to join IL-OERS@JISCMAIL.AC.UK.
We have also received funding for a short project to explore how IL OERs can be promoted internationally. See the Project Co-PILOT page for further details.
Many thanks if you filled in our survey, The FindingSharingOERs_reportFINAL is now available !
