Open Educational Resources allow free and open access to materials like textbooks and teaching resources, enabling a potential revolution in access to learning and teaching materials. In this session, we’ll explore in detail the possibilities this creates for teachers, lecturers and students in higher education. Speakers will include Helen Moore and Maria Mawson from the University Library, and Dr Tom Howard, University Teacher in Robotics and Interim Academic Lead in Computing, Control and Electrical Engineering (CCEE) (Multidisciplinary Engineering Education).
