Guidebook to Research on Open Educational Resources Adoption
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

The purpose of this guidebook is to provide ideas for how individual
faculty members and those who support them (e.g., librarians, instructional
designers, etc.) can research the effect of their adoption of open educational
resources (OER). Clearly educational research is a challenging enterprise;
this guidebook is not meant to replace the substantive courses and
experiences that a Ph.D. in educational research would provide. Rather,
our hope is to provide some straightforward suggestions that could be
implemented by OER adopters so as to help them identify what has
happened as a result of their OER adoption.
