Open Learning Design Studio (OLDS) - Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) The project will design, deliver and evaluate an 8-10 week Open Learning Design Studio MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) focusing on the theme of curriculum design with OERs, to be held in early 2013. Open to individual educators from across the UK HE, FE, and community and skills sectors, the MOOC will aim: to increase the uptake of OERs through embedding the use of curriculum design tools, practices and approaches in individual practice and design team culture; to empower practitioners to become change agents in their local contexts; and to produce a collection of CC-licensed OER resources for wider use after the MOOC ends. Weekly activities will feature a range of presenters with a focus on foregrounding successful JISC and HEA funded UK projects and giving UK practitioners access to (and opportunity to learn from) some of the best of European initiatives. Further details regarding how to get involved, start dates, and core themes will be announced during the summer. Project Outputs
