4g: Student Engagement – gauging learner attitudes to OER

4g: Student Engagement – gauging learner attitudes to OER | Opening up education | Scoop.it
Robert Schuwer's insight:

Results of a study by the Higher Education Academy and National Union of Students in the UK about attitude towards and use of OER. For me, some remarkable results were:

 

"The spirit of open learning is one of sharing freely and openly yet both groups of students (traditional and non-traditional) said they were likely to share resources that they had found but with caveats, such as only with people they knew, or with just others in the same class or after they had finished using a particularly useful resource as they wanted to gain an advantage and the possibility of a higher mark than other students. Such comments highlight students' perceptions of assessment and competition. "

 

"There was less likelihood of sharing resources when the materials were produced by the students themselves. One reason was concerns over being accused of plagiarism."

 

"when asked whether materials from their courses should be made openly available, opinions were divided with views ranging from “not minding” to “no, it would devalue education and why pay for something that is made free for others not paying”."
