The recently completed Research on Open Educational Resources for Development (ROER4D) project, hosted in the Centre for Innovation in Learning and Teaching at UCT, profiles open education research from 21 countries in the Global South.
As one of its first research activities, the DOT4D project is conducting a landscape survey of open textbook publishing at the University of Cape Town in order to produce a comprehensive list of open textbook publishing initiatives at UCT.
The Global OER Graduate Network (GO-GN) hosted alumnus DOT4D Principal Investigator Dr Glenda Cox in an open webinar on the DOT4D conceptual approach and proposed social justice intersectional model on Wednesday 5 December.
DOT4D Principal Investigator Dr Glenda Cox was recently invited to present on “The philosophy of open” in the University of Pretoria Open Access seminar series. The presentation focused largely on affordances of the open movement and the potential of open educational resources to assist in addressing current challenges related to curriculum transformation, localisation and cost reduction.
