Abstract

The recent and exponential growth in open education resources (OER) is seriously challenging traditional models of education. Continuous improvements in information technology, infrastructure and services, coupled with the
emergence of open online provision of education, is poised to enable more people to access learning opportunities while driving down costs to the student and overcoming some logistical barriers. This paper reports on two initiatives to utilise technology and open source learning materials to bring bridging programs to two unique cohorts of students: those incarcerated in correctional centres and those hindered by their social, cultural and linguistic backgrounds. Both groups require unique adaptations of existing curriculum and pedagogy to overcome challenges to their participation and success. The paper considers issues of intellectual property and copyright of resource materials, and advocates the use of open educational resources and the adoption of a pedagogy of discovery to
equip these students with the skills to independently support their own education and training.
