A series of high-end complementary maths teaching resources directly aligned with the Irish Department of Education’s “Project Maths” syllabus and the Irish Leaving Certificate Exam are being offered by Alison (Advance Learning Interactive Systems Online).
These resources were created in collaboration with two Galway-based, Project Maths trained, secondary school teachers in partnership with the Galway Education Centre and the Athenry Maths Academy.
Currently available is Strand One of the curriculum: Probability and Statistics (Ordinary Level and Higher Level), an area found to be of traditional difficulty among students, and an area of increasing importance in the growing knowledge economy.
These are a complementary resource, not a replacement to in-classroom teaching of maths, and are made up of video lectures as well as interactive lessons from teachers and tutors from all over the world.
A Certificate of Completion is awarded to students who complete the full course.
The paper “If we open it will they come? Towards a new OER Logic Model” presents the result of a multilingual empirical survey on the ‘micro level factors’ of using, creating sharing and reusing open educational resources (OER).
Authored by Dr Ulf-Daniel Ehler, Professor for Educational Management and Lifelong Learning at Baden-Wurttemberg Cooperative State University, the paper emerges from the assumption that current models of OER integration are often lacking factors to support the creation of a sustainable open educational practice culture in organisations.
Micro level factors for integration of OER into teaching and learning on basis of the results of an empirical survey are presented and interpreted. They are used to enhance the OER logic model(s) into an “enhanced OER logic model” which, in addition to create equalized access, is capable of creating a culture of open educational practices as well.
Wiki for Higher Education (wiki4HE) is a research project being carried out by Spanish researchers aiming to analyse the use of Internet open content for university teaching and explore and propose new ways for using these resources in learning processes.
wiki4HE will specifically examine the educational uses of one of the most important open repositories of knowledge nowadays, Wikipedia, and explore the attitudes and perceptions of university teachers towards this virtual collaborative encyclopaedia (and open resources in general).
The expected outcomes of the project are a clear understanding of the perception, attitudes and uses of Wikipedia by university faculty and the identification of factors influencing these perceptions and practices. Moreover, taking into account this information, wiki4HE will produce a catalogue of educational practices and tutorials involving the use of Wikipedia, which teachers and university staff will be able to adapt to suit their needs and their pedagogical orientations.
Finally a set of recommendations will be drafted in order to help any university teacher to design, plan and implement new teaching practices using open resources in the Internet.
