Professional Development Programme on OER-based e-learning

Professional Development Programme on OER-based e-learning

The Commonwealth Educational Media Centre for Asia (CEMCA), realised the need for
professional development of teachers, has developed this professional development programme
on OER-based eLearning to promote the use of OER in educational institutions.

The programme has been developed as part of the institutional capacity building for
OER-based eLearning at Wawasan Open University (WOU), Penang. Faculty members
of WOU and several other institutions in Asia have contributed to the development of the
contents. The modules are learning outcomes of the participants in three workshops
supported by CEMCA.

The five modules are:

Module 1: Concept and Practices of Open Education
Module 2: Designing Learning Experiences for OER-based eLearning
Module 3: Searching and Evaluation of OER Materials
Module 4: Licensing and Copyright
Module 5: Integrating OER in eLearning
