Core Area 3: The Wider Context

a) Understanding and engaging with legislation, policies and standards

In this section I reflect on my understanding of issues relating to copyright, IPR, licensing legislation and data protection with relation to Higher Education, and I provide an example of outlining licence recommendations for the Higher Education Coding of Subjects vocabulary.

b) Policy

In 2016 I contributed to the development of the University of Edinburgh’s OER Policy and later that year the work of the Open Education Team in supporting and embedding this policy was acknowledged in the ALT Learning Technologist of the Year Awards.
