Academy/JISC OER phase 3: initial information on JISC Funding Roadmap

I’m not sure whether everyone is aware of the JISC funding roadmap. It’s the best way of getting the maximum possible notice of forthcoming JISC (and joint) funding opportunities.

If you’d read this page this morning, you’d have spotted the following. (As with everything on the funding roadmap, this is subject to confirmation, change and delay.):

Academy/JISC Open Educational Resources (OER) Phase Three Programme Embedding and Sustaining Change

The Higher Education Academy (HEA) and the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) will be inviting institutions to submit funding proposals around OER related work against the following four strands:

Eligibility to Bid
Proposals may be submitted by Higher Education (HE) Institutions funded by HEFCE. FE institutions in England that teach HE to more than 400 FTEs are also eligible to bid provided proposals demonstrate work that supports the HE in FE agenda. HE and FE institutions in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales are not eligible to bid but may be involved as partners in proposals led by HE institutions funded by HEFCE or FE institutions in England which meet the criteria outlined above.

Obviously, we can’t give you any more information than this at the moment, so please don’t ask us. But do keep watching the roadmap and the JISC and Academy websites for the release of the funding circular.
