The Open Research Agenda

The Open Education Research Hub (OER Hub) is an award-winning open education research group based at The Open University, UK. The Open Research Agenda is a global consultation exercise that has been taking place throughout 2016 and will reach its final presentation at Open Education. So far, contributions have been received from dozens of key stakeholders in the open education world and results presented at the Open Education Global 2016; OER16; CALRG Annual Conference 2016 and other international meetings and events. At the time of writing (Apr 2016) we have received contributions from 60 respondents across 17 countries (5 continents) but this is expected to significantly increase by the time of presentation.



One of the aims of this ongoing consultation is to understand how different stakeholders (advocates; educators; funders; managers; producers; policymakers; students) in different countries perceive the challenges and priorities for research into open education. Analysis of the existing results will be presented with key findings and talking points highlighted. The conference session will be divided between plenary presentation of key findings and moderated discussion involving delegates, who will be encouraged to contribute to the consultation. The session will be used to interrogate and validate existing results as well as generate new data about research priorities.



Key thematic findings that have already emerged include:

- Different research agendas for the Global North / Global South

- Understanding barriers to adoption

- Recognition of non-formal learning resulting from use of open resources

- Understanding OER policy through key implementation drivers

- Sustainability in the OER ecosystem



The consultation is also supported online through the project website and social media accounts, allowing contribution from those who cannot make the session in person but also allowing participants to connect with others who have taken part.
