FAIRO (findable, accessible, interoperable, reusable and open) - Various perspectives and requirements on OER

Analogous to activities in the area of Open Access in research which are already institutionally anchored, Open Educational Resources (OER) are beginning to establish themselves at universities. These are meeting with increasing interest among teachers, students and management levels. In addition to building up competence in the use and creation of OER, their availability is of central importance in order to ensure the acceptance of OER in the long term. Thus, in addition to publications and research data, there is an increasing demand from sustainability to make teaching content available long term and for everybody. Additionally university staff itself also make demands on OER and their infrastructure as well as the accessibility of OER.

Therefore the institutional anchoring for OER combines development of services such as the technical infrastructure e.g. repositories and corresponding software, an OER-production service but also qualification offers for teaching staff at universities and any institutional policies and recommendations. In order to successfully support university staff in the sense of Open Education and Open Science the interdisciplinary cooperation of e-learning centres, central IT services and libraries is required.

Within this proposed Learning Lab Session we would like to give a short input about the already existing interdisciplinary cooperation between these stakeholders at the University of Vienna, in the context of Open Education Austria Advanced - a current project of several Austrian universities in the field of digital innovation of teaching in higher education - and beyond. We also exploit the potential of the cooperation between e-learning centers, central IT services and libraries and generate synergies between open education and open science for the establishment of open practices in the higher education sector. Furthermore we would then like to carry on the discussion with the participants in the proposed Learning Lab Session to get a closer look on the different requirements and various perspectives on OER that come from the different stakeholders involved.
