From content curation to Open Educational Practices: experiences in a medical curriculum
In a medical curriculum innovation we explored the use of OERs in the context of self directed learning. However, teachers encountered barriers in finding OERs and assessing the quality. Also they don’t have enough time to search and curate. Finally redesigning OERs into Open Educational Practices and integrating those in the curriculum is difficult. For these reasons Radboud university medical center initiated two projects: ‘content curation research’ and ‘creating OEPs for the curriculum’.

The university decided to support the teachers with new content curation services to overcome barriers to reuse OERs and move on to creating Open Educational Practices. This called for new support roles for library and educational expertise center.

A grand total of 14000 medical OERs have been curated using inclusion and exclusion criteria. The first curation round with 3rd and 4th year student workers took 750 hours. Only 19% of the curated OERs met the criteria. Reports for medical specialisms (like cardiology or neurology) were created, each with 20 to 130 OERs. A number teachers could easily crunch in the second curation round. Results are stored in a curated collection in a referatory.

Collection analysis results are surprising: 81% OERs rejected, only 5..10% could be used ‘as is’, low Creative Commons usage, (in-)completeness/low usability of metadata, OERs culturally difficult to translate.

Next step was to support teachers reusing OERs and creating Open Educational Practices. Educational consultants guide teachers through the redesign and curriculum implementation process. The adoption process from the teacher's intention to reuse to a well designed and implemented OEP is a slow and time consuming process in need of structured policy.

Other university medical centers are interested to use the referatory and implement OEPs locally. A national project is spinning off. The presentation will also explain the national approach.

Sharing experiences of creating blended courses with third party video materials
The purpose of the panel discussion is to open the floor to all attendees to hear and share experiences, as teachers, of creating blended/flipped courses where the video material was not created by themselves. We will start the panel discussion with short statements, yes/no answers, to help break the ice. 

Then, we share ideas and experiences:
  • where do you find your open video materials; 
  • which criteria are used for their selection; 
  • at which places are they integrated into your course and for what purpose; 
  • and what have been the experiences of students using these materials?
  • We bring the discussion full-circle: how can you reduce barriers to reuse by others?

Our aim is to generate enthusiasm among teachers who want to start blending their own education, and to collectively exchange practices on the selection and use of these materials.

Participants will leave the discussion having access to a shared document (https://yint.org/video) that captures the points from the discussion: pros and cons, dos and don'ts, where to find and how to select these video materials.

The presentation and raw survey data are also available from the above link.
