ROER4D Overview

The Research on Open Educational Resources for Development (ROER4D) project aims to provide evidence-based research from a number of countries in South America, Sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia. The primary objective of the programme is to improve educational policy, practice, and research in developing countries by better understanding the use and impact of OER

The ROER4D project’s main research output comprises an edited volume entitled OER Adoption and Impact in the Global South. This will comprise 16 chapters and will be published in December 2017. Currently we are releasing chapters as part of our advanced publication strategy.
