Research - Teaching
The ZHAW promotes the implementation of open educational resources (OER), open access and open science. As a member of ZHAW staff or a ZHAW student, you are provided with support by the University Library, which maintains close contact with the community.
Do you prepare educational materials yourself or are you looking for high-quality resources to help you with your teaching activities or studies? OER open up new, pioneering ways of teaching and allow for teaching materials to be freely accessed by and distributed to the public.
The ZHAW has anchored OER in its “Education and digital transformation” strategy (in German). In its OER Policy, it recommends the use of OER materials and supports ZHAW staff and students in producing them. Our OER competence centre at the University Library will advise you on all issues relating to CC licenses and OER. It also offers assistance with the use, further development and distribution of open educational materials through our advisory services, workshops and provided resources.
