Evaluation report: Open Educational Resources (OER) workshops

In 2020, the Towards digital (open) educational resources zone held its first workshop Redesigning your education with educational resources provided by others. Are you curious about the evaluation and results? The University of Groningen (RUG), as a participating institution in the zone, presents the Evaluation Report on Open Educational Resources (OER) workshops.

From roadmap to workshop

After designing and delivering the online workshop, a step-by-step plan was developed in collaboration with RUG, SURF, and HAN University of Applied Sciences. This step-by-step plan makes it possible to develop a complete online workshop for instructors so that they can get started with open educational resources. The roadmap includes the HAN pilot workshop and the RUG pilot workshop.

After the pilot workshop, the RUG continued to host the workshop. 43 RUG lecturers and education support staff took part in three online workshops. The evaluation report shows what the lecturers, support staff, and workshop leaders learned. The evaluation consists of three parts:

  1. What the participants learned and what was improved as a result of their feedback;
  2. Stories about behavioural change of the participants;
  3. What the workshop facilitators learned both organisationally and from the participants.

Spoiler alert!

In the report, the RUG concludes that the workshops are a success! A side note: time is scarce for lecturers, which means continuous support in the initial phase and carefree support in the longer term are necessary. This can be done by providing information, easy tooling, platforms, and sufficient manpower to support academics very directly.

Getting started with the workshop

Will you be using the step-by-step plan to organise a workshop? Please let us know. You can share your workshop materials (such as the PowerPoint slides) with other institutions. In this way, we can build a library of workshop materials together. If you need tips or help, please get in touch with Lieke Rensink. Lieke is the connector in the zone and SURF’s project leader for Open Educational Resources.
