Hello everyone, I am Joan Buckley. I teach in the Nursing Department at Nassau Community College and will be working with my colleagues from other schools of Nursing to provide an OER book that will encourage other nurses to understand the importance of research in the Healthcare field. Particularly when it is done by nurses.
Hi Joan, welcome to the Rebus Community! It’s great to hear that you are a part of the coordinated effort to create Nursing OER. Are you working with others at Chippewa Valley Technical College? I know that they are also undertaking a collaborative project to create 5 OERs in Nursing.
There’s a lot of excellent work taking place in the healthcare field. I’d like to connect you with @Stan_Yu & Heather @exnerpirot, from University of Saskatchewan, who recently released Northern and Indigenous Health and Healthcare. Theirs was a very large project with over 50 contributors from around the world who took part. They may have a lot of tips to pass along to you, based on their experience with their project, and they may also be interested in the work that you’re doing!
Thank you Apurva,
It took me a bit to see the next step but I appreciate the contact and will share with the other members of this project. You should be hearing from them soon if you haven’t already.
Looking forward to it!
You’re also welcome to set up a project home page and discussion space in this platform (instructions are in the Create a New Project thread). This can be a space to share your project summary, details, updates, as well as a point of communication with your team and others in the community who may be interested in following your project or contributing to it.
Hi, I have been trying to create the platform and it does not complete.
I have done it over many times but could use some advice…
Hi Joan, thank you for letting us know about the issues you’ve been having to create a project homepage. We are looking into what’s causing the error now, and I hope to get back to you soon with an update! If you could possibly share all the information you had entered in the fields when you were attempting to create your project, that will help our @zoe and our dev team troubleshoot and diagnose the error. Thanks so much.
It’s worth sticking to it! I’ve learned so much here.
