Mike Sanders, Alison Stokes and Yolande Knight GEES Subject Centre Open Fieldwork Expert Seminar 23 rd May 2011
Aims for the day 1.Present the Fieldwork Education Resource Collection (FERC) to expert practitioners for appraisal and feedback 2.Provide an overview of the practicalities of OER and the opportunity to review delegates’ own resources 3.Explore options for sustaining the FERC beyond the term of JISC funding / future development
Open Fieldwork Project Thematic collections strand of OER 2 “Projects identifying, collecting and promoting collections of OER and other material around a common theme”
What are OER? The Jorum national repository www.jorum.ac.uk/www.jorum.ac.uk/ A place to put OER Jorum contains either: –The actual resources or –A link to the resources The majority of resource in Jorum are freely available under a CC licence to anyone
Creative Commons Can control whether: Attribution should be given or not Commercial use permitted or not To allow derivatives to be made or not The end user does not have to contact the owner It is NON-TRANSACTIONAL
Creative Commons http://creativecommons.org/ A way of licensing your material so that you keep copyright but allow other people to copy and distribute your work on the conditions you specify as long as they give you credit
Creative Commons Go to www.flickr.com/www.flickr.com/ Search for “commercial jet” Pick an image and find the licence associated with it Can you find a way of only searching for images released under creative commons? When you have found an image can you find details of the CC licence it has been released under
Pros: Provides examples of field sites Provides some form of redress if misused Good to share / self-promotion Reusing in different ways – if there, then easy/useful Not reinventing wheel Good for more complicated formats Saving of time (!) - leads to better quality teaching Ethics – do as I do New ideas Could lead to collaboration Level of permissions clarified Pros and cons of using OER to support fieldwork
Cons: Unlikely to find exact resource > > modification needed? Problems with accessing resources in Jorum Time spent searching ≠ time preparing – every second counts Hard to find solid OER – searching is problematic (Jorum) Problems with uploading into Jorum – metadata fields etc + problems with updating Poor / non-uniformity of metadata If creating for OER >> more time needed to ensure CC clear Repurposing harder than creating Mapping >> EDINA data? OS data closely guarded beyond institution firewall If web-based, issue with longevity >> might disappear! Pros and cons of using OER to support fieldwork
Fieldwork resources 1.Location-specific (e.g. virtual field trip) 2.Generic: a)Skills or techniques-based b)General information or guidance (e.g. safety briefings, good practice guides)

Preparing for open release What would be involved if you wanted to release your own materials as an OER? look though your fieldwork resource and identify any elements that you think might need to be cleared for use before open release. Trying to “retro fit” a CC licence to existing material can be time consuming Starting from scratch using you own material and other CC licenced material is easier
Preparing for open release How can I add a resource to the FERC? –Send it to the FERC administrator to be added manually (http://www.openfieldwork.org.uk/api/addresource.php)http://www.openfieldwork.org.uk/api/addresource.php –If it’s available under a CC licence add it to Jorum and the FERC can pick it up and add it the collection automatically (see http://www.openfieldwork.org.uk/api/help.php ) http://www.openfieldwork.org.uk/api/help.php
Preparing for open release For the Fieldwork Educational Resources Collection to automatically add your resource from Jorum, you can put ‘fieldwork’ (all one word) into the title and/or description. If a position on the map is required, coordinates as decimal degrees in square brackets e.g. [51.785461 -5.10323] should also be included in the description.

Use of images in OER You’ve already seen Flickr commons Have a look at the xpert attribution tool (you can Google “xpert attribution”): http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/xpert/attribution/ The tool searches for CC images on the web Images are returned with the correct CC attribution appended to the bottom of the image
