Webinar on impact of Open Education - Findings from the OER Research Hub | Association for Learning Technology | Issues in HE | Scoop.it

Presentation by Martin Weller  
Professor of Educational Technology, Institute of Educational Technology Open University

 Introduced  by Ella Mitchell and Sarah Bridgman .   

The OER Research Hub has been investigating the impact of OERs, using eleven hypotheses, and a mixed methods approach to establish an evidence base. This talk explores the findings relating to teaching and learning. The findings reveal a set of direct impacts, including an increase in factors relating to student performance, increased reflection on the part of educators, and the use of OER to trial and supplement formal study. There are also indirect impacts, whose benefits will be seen after several iterations.
