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.
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.
In October 2018, the University of Cape Town (UCT) joined institutions around the world in celebrating International Open Access Week. UCT Libraries, in collaboration with Disability Services, the Centre for Innovation in Learning and Teaching (CILT) and Postgraduate Studies, hosted a seminar on “Designing equitable open access foundations for social justice”. The event highlighted UCT’s explicit social justice agenda in encouraging more open, inclusive approaches to scholarship.
