Researching OER in the Open: developments and deliberations in the ROER4D project

← Back to list of events

The ROER4D project, funded by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), the Open Society Foundations (OSF) and DFID was launched in August 2013 to undertake research on the adoption and impact of open educational resources (OER) specifically in countries in the Global South. The project’s main aim is to inform educational policy and practice in developing countries through its research findings on possible ways in which and under what circumstances OER may address the key educational challenges. In keeping with the principle of openness, the ROER4D team committed themselves to follow emerging open research practices. This presentation will reflect upon the initial intentions of open research by the ROER4D team and trace the emergence of a more comprehensive and more complex set of open research practices.
