I recently finished reading the OER Hub Researcher Pack, written by the @OER_Hub team, and wanted to capture some notes and citations for future work.
- focus on tools that researchers can use
- adapt tools for our needs and share them back with the community
- love that this book can be downloaded as a zip file!
- What will the ethics framework for your open research project look like? See example from OER Hub
- One of the questions about operating in the open that stood out for me was “Is it always right to use openly available data from social networks?” I attended a session at the 2016 AECT convention in which Royce Kimmons and George Veletsianos presented their research, discussed their use of social media, and demonstrated the ethical issues they encountered.
- see the Ethics section of Open Research course for in-depth discussion (also on my reading list)
- conduct your analysis and publish your work prior to releasing data with CC license
- data is a publication!
- how do you plan to anonymize it? use metadata in such a way that data set is useful to others and can be built upon for additional research?
- OER hub released a set of 54 core survey questions that align with 11 hypotheses of research project
- question bank is reusable and remixable
- follow good practices for survey and research design
- interview questions also available for reuse
- follow good practices for interview and research design
- serves as a means to check on project while it’s in progress and to see if it accomplished what researcher intended it to do
- build evaluation in from the onset
- see example from OER Hub
- Canva, Easel.ly, & Piktochart are some options
- see examples from OER Hub
- The impact of OER on teaching and learning practice
- Exploring the use of Open Educational Resources at British Columbia post-secondary institutions
- A framework for the ethics of open education
- Women’s empowerment through openness: OER, OEP and the sustainable development goals
- Open education and critical pedagogy
- The philosophy of open learning
- Battle for open: How openness won and why it doesn’t feel like victory
