The OSIER project (Open Sustainability in Education Resource) is concerned with the open sharing of resources for the teaching of sustainable development and global citizenship. It forms part of the second round of the HEFCE-funded UK OER programme, administered jointly by the Higher Education Academy and the Joint Information Systems Committee.
With its academic partners, OSIER has built an online repository containing a large body of teaching and support resources to help with the sustainability and citizenship curricula in all four nations of the UK. The repository will be open for all, both to access materials and for submission of new resources. Users will have the opportunity to comment on resources, to add new resources of their own, and to upload resources based on materials that they have downloaded from the site. All materials will be fully accessible and re-usable, made available under a Creative Commons License.
