The aim is to support a change in culture for the production of learning materials to encourage re-use and redevelopment, sharing the new outputs back into the original discipline pool. The Bioscience community has mixed experiences of re-use of materials produced in other institutions. It has often been the case that unless the material could be used as a complete item then it was rarely partially used. The objective is to increase awareness of the OER approach in the Bioscience and establish examples across a range of disciplines by providing examples of projects which deconstructed a collection of content into independent learning objects as far as reasonably possible
