Developing and publishing OER is a significant undertaking. Below are some points to consider.
Obtain support from communities of practice during the stages of your project development.
Determine the licencing and intellectual property rights that will apply to the completed project.
Use the OEL Toolkit, a tool that provides tailored copyright and licensing guidance for developing OER in Australian higher education.
Consider collaborating, either within your School, within the University of Tasmania, or with other institutions.
Consider the project life cycle including: designing, prototyping, testing, trialling, production, promoting, maintenance etc.
List what is needed to complete the project, including reporting requirements, skill sets, staff development needs, time and space requirements, development tools and consumables.
Identify how to obtain all project resources. Consider what you can access either directly or in kind and funding options such as UTAS Teaching Development Grants.
Publish your completed project to an appropriate repository. Deciding which repository is appropriate is a likely outcome of your initial environmental scan or through discussions within your community of practice.
Consider options for publishing your experiences through conferences or professional journals.
