ROER4D weekly announcement – 5 February 2018

Developing Evaluation and Communication Capacity in Information Society Research (DECI-2) report on ROER4D
Our long-term evaluation and research communication partner organisation, DECI-2, has released a report on the ROER4D project as part of its activity in providing assistance to those research projects supported by the IDRC’s Information and Networks programme. The DECI-2 project mentored the ROER4D team, particularly in its communication and evaluation activities, to help develop comprehensive communication and evaluation frameworks employing a combination of Utilization-Focused Evaluation and Research Communication, and was particularly instrumental in the development of Key Evaluation Questions and the Theory of Change that the team employed in our communication and evaluation work. The full report can be accessed on DECI-2’s website.

Blog feature: Chapter 3 — OER use in the Global South
As part of the C-ROER4D content profiling and dissemination activity, we will be featuring a chapter a week from the edited volume via the project blog and social media channels, starting with the sub-project chapters and ending with the synthesis components. This activity was initiated last week by profiling Chapter 3, OER use in the Global South: A baseline survey of higher education instructors by José Dutra de Oliveira Neto, Judith Pete, Daryono and Tess Cartmill.

Sub-project 9 research communication activity
SP9 Lead Researcher Werner Westermann has published a blog in Spanish about the implications of his research on the Effectiveness of OER use in first-year higher education students’ mathematical course performance. Werner will also be publishing a paper in IRRODL that summarises his research.

Please let us know about any communication activity you are undertaking to promote your ROER4D research. We would be happy to support you in this mutually beneficial process.

All the best for this week

Cheryl Hodgkinson-Williams and the ROER4D Network Hub team.
