Understanding the use of Open Eductional Resources
This project, which was partially funded by USQ’s Early Career Research Program, is a research project aimed at exploring the extent to which higher education institutions are participating in the development of open educational resources and open education practices. The project investigates the initiatives undertaken by representatives of the OER university network and compares these to those of other institutions across the world.
The final outcome of the study will be a compatibility indicator for the OERu concept based a comparison of the findings from the two groups. The capability indicator will enable universities and other education institutions to determine their compatibility with the OERu concept, by identifying aspects of current policies and practices at their institutions that would hinder or support the implementation of sustainable assessment and accreditation initiatives based on OERs, in collaboration with other institutions.
