TOUCANS OERu research project takes off
Via Scoop.it – Open learning news
I have been lucky enough to be awarded a SCORE fellowship, which I am doing from my base at the Beyond Distance Research Alliance at the University of Leicester, with the support of the Open University. This is one of several such UK-based research projects being funded by HEFCE. (See http://www.open.ac.uk/score.) The project is called TOUCANS, and will focus on perceptions and attitudes towards the Open Educational Resources university (http://wikieducator.org/Oeru) within the UK Higher Education sector, and will hopefully generate some recommendations for institutions that are considering participating in the OERu. The project will run until the end of June 2012, and I’ll be blogging about it here (http://www.scoop.it/t/open-learning-news), along with other open learning news items as usual. See http://www.le.ac.uk/toucans for more details.
