Open Educational Resources

This presentation looked at the advantages and disadvantages of using open educational resources (OER) in research methods teaching. Ian drew upon the findings of a research project conducted last year which aimed to evaluate the potential of OER and the resources produced by methods@manchester in particular to contribute to the provision of needs-based research methods training. Ian also considered some of the barriers to finding OER and embedding them in existing courses.


A wide-ranging coverage of the benefits of using Open Educational Resources is presented here, with a focus on Ian's work for SCORE and the Methods at Manchester project.
