Dear OER Experts or University Educators,
The researchers are conducting an online survey to develop and validate a set of quality and pedagogical guidelines which individual educators in higher education can apply in selecting and utilizing freely available OER for their teaching. OER can be full courses, textbooks, course materials, video/audio lectures, tests, and any other materials or tools used to support teaching and learning.
We are asking for your help in validating the quality/pedagogical guidelines for OER by completing an online survey. This survey should take about 10 minutes.
This survey has 4 sections:
- Section 1, Your Background, consists of 4 questions.
- Section 2, Quality Standards, consists of rating the importance of the 18 Quality Standards.
- Section 3, Pedagogical Guidelines, consists of rating the usefulness of the 10 Pedagogical Strategies.
- Section 4, Additional Comments, consists of an optional opportunity to provide additional comments or suggestions.
If you have any questions about the survey, please contact any of the researchers below.
If you’ve read our explanation above and agree to participate in this survey, please click the “Continue to Survey” button below. If not, please exit this page.
Findings of the survey will be first shared on a website (http://web.icu.ac.jp/IERS) and later published in an open journal which is under a Creative Commons license.
Thank you for your contribution to the development of the quality standards / pedagogical guidelines for OER use in higher education.
