Way back during the first phase of the Hub we released all our tools and methodologies in the open for reuse and review by other researchers. We are delighted to hear that they have been of use to others when planning their own research on the impact of open education. 

However, we were also aware that the tools needed something extra (a kind of wrap around) to help potential users understand how we had used the tools and methodologies in practice. With this in mind we’ve produced a short toolkit guide using Pressbooks: The OER Researcher Pack. We also have a PDF version available.

The toolkit covers evaluation, ethics, interview and survey questions, data, infographics and also contains a handy bibliography of Hub research outputs.

We hope that this guide will prove useful for anyone wanting to use our tools and would love to hear any feedback you might have or if/how you choose to reuse any of our content. Happy exploring!
