ABSTRACT
Executive Summary (partial)

Aims
The OER Impact Study was conducted between November 2010 and June 2011 by a team from the University of Oxford. Its remit was to investigate university lecturers’ and students’ use of open education resources (OER), and to inform the higher education community of the current impact of OER from the perspective of use rather than production. Specifically, the research team addressed the following questions:

I. What benefits can OER offer to educators and learners in HE in the UK?

II. What are the pedagogic, attitudinal, logistical and strategic factors conducive to uptake and sustained practice in the use of OER; conversely, what are the impediments?

Keywords case studies · OEP · OER · OER adoption strategy · OER awareness · OER experts · online vs. printed materials · research · teaching values
