Campbell, L.M. and Littlejohn, A.H. (2002). Two approaches to enable the sharing and reuse of resources across institutions. In: EdMedia 2002 (Barker, P. and Rebelsky, S. eds.), Jul 2002, Denver, Colorado, USA, Association for the Advancement of Computing in Education (AACE), pp. 1144–1145.


Over the past two years, the Scottish Higher Education Funding Council has funded a programme of pioneering projects examining staff development in the use of communication and information technology for faculty in Higher Education. This study presents two diverse, yet related, projects which examine multi-institutional sharing and reuse of high quality staff development materials. One approach involves the adaptation of modular courses for institutional reuse. The other entails the development of an online resource base which facilitates the upload, storage, retrieval and reuse of granular materials. This presentation aims to describe the impact and discuss issues associated with the adoption of each of these strategies. It will be of particular interest to those involved in the implementation of networked learning in higher education, including staff developers and institutional managers.
