Share research and educational resources
Make your London 2012 work available to future generations.
From Andrew Gray, Kultur Project Officer and UAL/OER project leader at the Archives and special Collections Centre, LCC.
Open Educational Resources (OER):
OER or Open Educational Resources is a term applied to the sharing between teachers and institutions of resources created for teaching and learning. The benefits of shared resources are both incremental and durable providing support not merely to institutions and teaching staff but also to the wider subject community, students and prospective students, nationally and globally. UAL alongside University for the Creative Arts, University of Cumbria and the Art, Design and Media centre from the Higher Education Academy is exploring how best to share the many teaching and learning materials we produce within the creative arts. 2012 offers a great opportunity for UAL staff to develop dynamic educational resources that can be used beyond the time of the 2012 Olympics. The OER project will be able to work with staff to ensure that any resources created will be consistently managed and accessible to all who need them.

UAL Research Online:
UAL Research Online http://ualresearchonline.arts.ac.uk/ is a freely available online database recording and sharing the research conducted by staff at UAL. Anyone with access to a computer will be able to view and in some cases download the wide variety of research produced by UAL. Our purpose is not only to promote the individual research but also the researcher and UAL to the wider academic and online communities. For those working on a research project for 2012 we invite you to place your work in UAL Research Online in order to ensure that it is available for future generations. UAL Research Online will also be key in submitting work to the upcoming REF (Research Evaluation Framework). To find out more either email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 020 7514 9334.
