Welcome to the central project resources page. On this page are links to resources produced by the Project Coordination team located in the University of Cape Town.
The resources on this page are organised by the six strategic areas outlined in the design of the ROER4D project:
- To develop the knowledge base of OER researchers in the Global South
- To develop the research skills and competencies of OER researchers
- To demonstrate Open Research by sharing project planning and management documents throughout the research process
- To communicate ROER4D’s findings, processes and insights throughout the course of the project
- To evaluate the operation of the project during the research process in order to intervene effectively when problems arise
- To organise, store and curate project outputs to ensure long-term accessibility
