OSTRICH project

OSTRICH (OER Sustainability through Teaching & Research Innovation: Cascading across HEIs) was a year-long project led by the Beyond Distance Research Alliance at the University of Leicester.

The project explored the transfer and cascade of the key outcomes of a previous institutional OER pilot project at Leicester (OTTER) to two partner institutions (University of Bath and University of Derby).

The aims of the OSTRICH project at the University of Bath were to:

  • promote awareness of the benefits of OER (creator and user) for academics
  • clarify any legal/IPR issues for those who want to create OER resources
  • establish good practice for the creation of OER material at Bath
  • provide a repository for OER learning and teaching materials
  • foster an active OER Interest Group at the University
