Telangana Open Educational Resources (TROER)
This is an OER repository for resource creation of the teachers, by the teachers and for the teachers of Telangana.
This is an initiative of the Department of School Education, DSE, to create a resource repository of Open Educational Resources (OER) for teachers to make available curricular resources as well as support continuous professional development through participatory resource creation.
It is envisaged that teachers and teacher educators will collaborate to build OER on this platform. Participation by teachers can provide a sustainable model of creating and sharing educational resources that can enhance the educational outcomes.
The core principles of TROER are participation, contextualization, availability of open educational resources and supporting teachers' professional development through participation in making curricular resources.
The resources have been developed for primary, elementary and secondary levels, along the framework developed in the National Curricular Framework, and as per the Telangana State Curricular Framework. These resources will include pedagogic approaches and classroom practices that will build towards the meta-knowledge of the practising teachers and teacher educators and are meant to supplement and complement the textbooks.
