Open Educational Resources for new graduates

The eMedia Unit is working with the RCVS Trust and partners from across the UK veterinary sector on a project to aid the transition from veterinary school to practice. This is funded by Higher Education Academy/JISC under the Open Educational Resources Programme.

The project will investigate the challenges that veterinary graduates face as they start out in the workplace, identify what they need to help them meet these challenges, review the veterinary and generic OERs that are available to meet these needs and suggest ways in which these OERs can be made more accessible. The project will run until 30 November 2012.
