Overview of the deft digital futures in teacher education project
Overview of the DeFT: Digital Futures in Teacher Education project

  • Part of a larger UK Open Educational Resources (OER) programme, led jointly by JISC (Joint Information Systems Committee) and the Higher Education Academy on behalf of HEFCE.   

  • Builds on previous involvement of the team with the OER programme

  • Links with Collaboration Sheffield, the Transformative Change project involving both Sheffield universities

  • Key goal is to raise the status and quality of teaching and the level of digital literacies and the (re)use of OERs in the teaching workforce.

Key terms digital literacy
Key terms: Digital literacy project

  • A blend of ICT, media and information skills and knowledge situated within academic practice contexts while influenced by a wide range of techno-social practices involving communication, collaboration and participation in networks.

  • The project embraces a holistic view of digital literacy and engages with a number of different actors involved in/ influenced by issues related to teacher education

  • The project works on the assumption that increasingly the skills and experience that learners (and their teachers) have or need is changing and the baseline is being raised.



Project outputs open textbook
Project outputs: Open textbook project

  • i) Digital literacies in the context of professional development: opportunities and challenges of embedding digital literacies within teacher education

  • ii) Digital literacies for creative learners: a set of tools and resources for embedding OERs within the school sector.

  • These materials will be accompanied by pedagogical descriptions with the aim to become incorporated into existing PGCE/PGCert modules



Case studies stories of oer re use
Case studies/stories of OER (re)use project

  • Partners’ reflections on the process: before, during, after – examination of assumptions, challenges involved in “opening up” the materials

  • Focused around one module - but reflect across the scope of the project

  • Supporting materials

Evaluating the Practice of Opening up Resources for Learning and Teaching in the Social Sciences

Key issues quality in teaching with oers
Key issues: quality in teaching with OERs project

  • Focus on the “why” rather than the “how” of Open Educational Resources

  • Emphasis on the broader cultural and institutional context in which OERs are created and (re)used and any resulting issues and/or tensions 

  • Release of OERs at an institutional level provides an opportunity for existing quality measures (technical/pedagogical) to be reconsidered/evaluated
