This event presented the research outputs on the development, use and sharing of Digital Resources at third level in Ireland.The event was attended by academics from all 21 higher level institutions across the country. This symposium was timely; given that Open Educational Resources (OERs) are being strongly promoted at all levels of education. This symposium presents a select number of case studies from contributors to the Irish National Digital Learning Resources (NDLR) service. While the degree to which OERs will impact on education is yet unknown, the development of and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and Open Repositories is having a profound impact on teaching and learning. In a relatively short period of time the rapid development of ICT has radically changed our methods of accessing and using educational resources. The reflection and discussions about issues of use and integration into classroom practice are thus particularly useful. All of the presentations from this symposium will be published in the forthcoming Cambridge Scholars Press publication.
