Open Educational Resources in Germanic Philology teaching

Cristina Raffaghello

I would like just to introduce myself to the Community. My name is Cristina Raffaghello, Adjunct Professor at e-campus University and Eastern Piedmont University (Vercelli, Italy). I am an Anglistik. My studies concern Anglo-Saxon and Middle English Literature about several topics, as laws texts (Anglo-Saxon Kings, as Aethelred and Canute, together with Anglo-Normans, as William the Conqueror and Henry I). Other topics regard Reckoning of time (Byrhtferth’s Enchiridion) and Medicine (Chirurgical Instruments, food, and diets in the Middle English version of Lanfranc’s Chirurgia Magna), together with Lombard Laws (Rothar, Grimoald, Rachis, and Liutprand).

I think the first part of this course (Eduhack) about OER very useful and interesting; considering it is possible to access/create Open Educational Resources about my discipline, above all sharing texts and manuscript images.

    In my opinion, teaching by word webs or mindmeister maps is very useful to allow students to understand all topics concerning linguistics, eg. the development from indieuropean to germamic languages relating to phonetics, morphology and lexicon. In the same way, students may find easier to get fond of old germanic literatures, as Gothic literary production (Ulphila’s Bible translation), Anglo-Saxon poetry and prose together with Old/Low high German literary production. Moreover, a great help is represented in learning Old Norse literature, too. Finally this method is good in learning medieval history, in which students find a good system to remember dates of historical events.
