Title: A QUALITY FRAMEWORK FOR OER
Author: Kaur, Abtar; Sankaran, Tamilarasi
Abstract: Quality in teaching and learning has always attracted the attention of policy makers, educators, parents and students. It is the bedrock of a quality output-the student and it marks the effectiveness and efficiency of the provider. The quality of teaching and learning is constantly questioned due to many reasons, some of which could be skills and knowledge of the teaching and learning process, the competency of the educator in the content knowledge, the passion and attitude of the educator vis-à-vis the expectations of students. This phenomenon has become more urgent as the availability of free electronic learning resources is equated to higher quality. As a teacher and also an e-learning educator, i find the sharing of open educational resources or OERs freely ( as per CC License) a right move towards increasing the quality of learning and hence democratization of education. However there seems to be some concerns as per the quality of the OERs. After all the whole idea of the OERs apart from “sharing resources freely and making an institutional mark” is also to ensure we overcome the constantly nudging issue of ineffective learning. Now that OERs have been created, it is important to evaluate the effectiveness of these OERs. This paper will first look at some crucial definitions, followed by a review of available efforts on quality of OERs and end with some case studies and suggestions
