Blog Post reflecting on OER and OEP research
Catherine Cronin, Educator & PhD researcher in the Centre for Excellence in Learning & Teaching (CELT) at the National University of Ireland, Galway and part of the GO-GN Network has written a blog post reflecting on her learning and experiences at the Open Education Global Conference particularly with regards to OEP and OER research. It’s breadth and comprehensiveness is especially helpful to anyone wanting to glean how the conference unfolded, and we are grateful for her mention of our project and interactions.

We have created a Storify – a visual capturing of interactions in a narrative form – of the ROER4D experience at the OE Global conference. The Storify seeks to capture ROER4D researchers’ experiences and interactions through Tweets sent at the conference.
