  6. 6. Categories (1) Project case study – reports on the findings of a particular case study, or announces the implementation of a project. Technical – focus on the technical specification of a particular project such as an OER repository. OER as subject – focused on the OER field itself, the nature of openness, the direction for OER, suggestions for adoption, etc. Research with impact data – undertakes evaluation of the impact of OER implementation, using educational research methodology such as control groups, pre and post test, etc. Policy - report on existing OER policies, the need for policy or standardized approaches, national frameworks, etc. Martin Weller, Different Aspects of the Emerging OER Discipline http://www.slideshare.net/mweller/emerging-oer-discipline
  7. 7. Categories (2) Practitioner – the use of OER by practitioners in a particular context, for example teachers or librarians. OER in developing nations – the use of OER in the context of developing nations e.g. projects such as TESSA. MOOCs – this group could be categorized as an emerging field of its own, or MOOCs could be interpreted as OER and reclassified under the other categories. Pedagogy – several articles focus specifically on the possible impact of OER on pedagogy, or as a vehicle for change in teaching practice. Open data/practice/access – an intersection with other aspects of open practice that have varying degrees of relevance to the OER community.

  12. 12. What is Open Research? “Open research is the process of conducting and sharing research in which a selection of research proposals, work-process documents, literature reviews, methodologies, research instruments, analytical frameworks, findings and/or data are intentionally shared on publically-accessible platforms in order for others to freely access, use, modify, and share them subject to measures that preserve ethical practice and legal provenance.” (Hodgkinson-Williams & King, 2015:5)
