The seminar is jointly organized by Centre for Information Technology in Education (CITE) and Centre for the Advancement of University Teaching (CAUT).
Why would you want to share your teaching materials with colleagues, with strangers, with the world? Why has the MIT put all its teaching materials on line, available to anyone with an Internet connection? How does the European Community support a multilingual, multicultural repository of learning resources? Could it ever happen in Hong Kong and China?Hong Kong Learning Resources Network (LEARNet) was funded by a Teaching Development Grant to
assist Hong Kong's university educators create, share and utilize learning resources across the system. It does this in several ways: through a new on-line catalogue of learning objects (Learning Resource Catalogue, LRC3), through support for the production of sharable materials, and through teaching development activities to help you utilize this pool of resources.
In this seminar/workshop we will discuss:
- Why would I want to share my teaching materials?
- Where can I find sharable resources and how can I integrate them into my course?
- Tools for collaboration.
- What about intellectual property?繚 Can my materials be peer reviewed?
- How does the LRC3 relate to learning management systems such as WebCT?
