Patrick McAndrew and Robert Farrow: The ecology of sharing - synthesizing OER research

Patrick McAndrew and Robert Farrow: The ecology of sharing - synthesizing OER research | Being practical about Open Ed | Scoop.it

"Arguably, Open Educational Resources (OER) are starting to enter the mainstream, though some fundamental questions about their value and impact remain to be answered or supported with appropriate evidence. Much early OER activity was driven by ideals and interest in finding new ways to release content, with less direct research and reflection on the process. Furthermore, the majority of OER studies are localised, making extrapolation problematic. At the same time there are considerable practical experiences and ideas that it would be valuable to share. This presentation introduces the ‘hub‘ as metaphor for the kind ofnetworked research that is needed by the OER movement."
