JRC-IPTS: Overview and Analysis of Practices with Open Educational Resources in Adult Education in Europe


Six summary recommendations for the advancement of OEP for adult learning in Europe:

1. Recognise that ‘learning’ takes place everywhere
2. Extend the range of people and organisations who produce and use resources
3. Think of OER more broadly than as content
4. Promote awareness of open licensing and its implications
5. Improve the usability of OER
6. Plan for sustained change

Leigh-Anne Perryman's insight:

A very solid report.

Robert Farrow's curator insight, August 25, 2015 5:42 AM

"Given this assessment, our future funding for the field of impact evaluation will seek to achieve the following outcomes: First, that impact evaluation practices are responsive to the needs of policymakers and program implementers. Second, that decisions are made based on bodies of knowledge that are designed to inform decision making. Third, that local researchers conduct high-quality, policy- and program-relevant impact evaluations.


As our grantmaking unfolds over the coming months and years, we may explore new ways for researchers and decision-makers to collaborate. We may test new ways to conduct impact evaluations that are more responsive to the types of questions decisionmakers ask and the timelines they work under. We will likely support new ways to review, summarize and present bodies of evidence to provide more useful information for policymakers. And we may invest in new ways to build evaluation capacities that are responsive to the context in which the evaluations are done."

Pearson, Efficacy, Credibility, and OER

Pearson, Efficacy, Credibility, and OER | Researching OER | Scoop.it

Whichever course material offering – whether commercial or open – provides the greatest benefit at the lowest cost deserves to win, plain and simple. The more efficacy research is published in credible outlets, the easier it is to see who’s winning. That’s why I want to see Pearson put their very best foot forward here. It’s also why OER effectiveness research needs to be putting its very best foot forward. Adopting commercial materials versus adopting OER is decision with multi-billion dollar implications. It is a decision we absolutely must get right, with significant impacts on state and federal grant and loan programs, student loan debt loads, drop, withdraw, and graduation rates, access to educational opportunity, and a range of other critically important issues – the least of which is not student learning.
