"Your OERs will outlive you: Open Education in the long term" - Martin Poulter at Repo Fringe 2016
From Ewan McAndrew on September 14th, 2016
“Your OERs will outlive you: Open Education in the long term” was the keynote address on Day 1 of Repository Fringe 2016 hosted by the University of Edinburgh on 1st & 2nd August 2016.
This talk is about the seeming paradox of the long-term sustainability of educational resources which need continuous evolution to stay relevant. The preservation of the utility of educational content is more challenging than just preserving that content. I will defend a web-of-knowledge approach rather than an atomistic approach. In the increasing ubiquity of these webs of knowledge justifies optimism about the sustainability of open educational resources and communities.
