1. The use and re-use of Oxford’s online resources by teachers within the collegiate University: an examination of practice
Through interviews with academics from a range of disciplines across the university we will build a more critical and theoretical perspective on how the use of OER enhances the University of Oxford’s reputation as one of the leading providers of online reusable learning and teaching resources in the UK. From the practical, methodological and conceptual understandings reached through this project the study will help to inform organisational support of OER at the University of Oxford in the future.
This will be achieved via a systematic literature review and a series of rich qualitative interviews with academics from a range of disciplines within the University, in order to understand a range of pedagogical, social, cultural, technological and political factors that are highly relevant to this developing field of research, while at the same time providing information that can be used at an institutional level to inform teaching practice, and appropriate models and investment strategies for OER within the University of Oxford in the future.
