GCU Launches OER Policy

Great news, the OER policy Marion Kelt spoke about at one of our recent coffee club meetings, has been approved by the University Executive.

The policy applies to all GCU staff and students who create, or publish OERs to support learning and teaching and gives advice on licencing and citing resources. More information on OERs is available from the library website.

The Library is also developing a repository that will facilitate the storage and sharing of OERs. It will be called EdShare@GCU and is due to launch in the autumn.  We’ve been promised a preview at a coffee club meeting so watch this space.

Marion will also be talking about the policy at the next ALT Scotland meeting being held in GCU LEAD on 18 June, you can register for this free event here.
