Welcome to the OSTRICH OER repository

The OSTRICH repository of Open Educational Resources (OERs) contains a range of learning and teaching materials that have been made available by the Universities of Bath and Derby as part of the OSTRICH project.

OSTRICH (OER Sustainability through Teaching & Research Innovation: Cascading across HEIs) is a year-long project led by the Beyond Distance Research Alliance at the University of Leicester. The project will explore 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). Further information on the OSTRICH project is available from the institutional project blogs in the links block.

The OSTRICH project is jointly supported by JISC and the HEA under the Open Educational Resources Programme.
