17. Sustainable Practice
In institutions where teaching is research-led academic colleagues are regularly engaged in processes of knowledge creation. This new knowledge quickly becomes the content of their teaching. Oxford University has established processes to enable academic colleagues to capture their research presentations as podcasts and licence those as OER with a rapid turn-around and minimal extra effort. We have aimed to make this creation of OER part of the day-to-day activity of staff who research and teach. This project will explore the relationship between OER and the research-teaching nexus by looking closely at how academic staff at two research intensive universities are supported in their academic practice. Working with colleagues in central services and academic libraries at Leeds and Oxford this project will look at the synergies between OER and Open Access Publishing in institutions where OER provides another dissemination mechanism for research, impact and public engagement.
