1st September 2012 - 31st August 2014

Our aim is to raise the quality and profile of research in this field. OER Hub has three key objectives:

  • Building capacity in the OER research domain
  • Conducting research into open education and OER
  • Producing resources for the open education research community

With expertise in a wide range of research methods, the OER Hub has more than 10 years of experience in open education impact research.

We conduct research using a range of methods – both quantitative and qualitative – and have expertise across the open education spectrum.

We operate an open practice based approach, releasing data openly, publishing in open access journals and running open courses. We also use a range of social media to engage and grow the open education community.
