ABSTRACT
The OER Research Hub (OERRH) project works collaboratively with open education initiatives around the world to examine the impact of open educational resources. In this paper I will outline methods for organizing and disseminating open research into OER. In particular, I focus on the value of curation when combined with strategies for the visual presentation of evidence
(especially mapping). The discussion is framed by a presentation of the OER Impact Map, an asset of OERRH.
