Jorum launches national competition
03 Jun 2009
Enter your Open Educational resources for judging
Jorum, jointly run by two national data centres, Mimas at The University of Manchester and Edina at the University of Edinburgh, is a JISC-funded online repository for learning and teaching resources. All resources that can be found within Jorum have been created by its community of UK Further and Higher Education teaching and support staff.
Jorum's purpose is to encourage users and contributors to find, share and deposit learning and teaching resources to help others save time in lesson planning and to share new ideas and teaching methods.
As Jorum looks to the future it will be engaging with the Open Educational Resources programme and will be offering Open Access resources to the wider audience in the near future.
Alongside this, the Jorum team has launched the Jorum Learning and Teaching Competition. The competition, which is running in conjunction with the ALT-C conference, Manchester, will be the first that Jorum has hosted on a national scale.
The competition will be asking for Open Educational resources to be entered for judging and should act as a showcase for those with the talent, dedication and desire to produce engaging and inspiring materials that can make a difference to any teaching environment.
Prizes kindly donated by Intrallect, of £300, £200 and £100 respectively, will be awarded to the top three learning and teaching resources entered.
Finalists will be asked to present their winning resources at the ALT-C conference in September, with prizes awarded at the conference dinner.
