Researchers from OER Collaborate with Open University to Produce Innovating Pedagogy Report 2016
Wednesday, 07 December 2016
Since 2012, a team of colleagues in the Institute of Educational Technology (IET) at The Open University produces an annual Innovating Pedagogy report to highlight new forms of teaching, learning and assessment to guide educators and policy-makers. The reports have been very well received, with over 60,000 downloads of the most recent report and many positive comments on Twitter and by email to the team.
For the 2015 report, IET tried a new approach by partnering with Professor Jeremy Roschelle, Professor Barbara Means and colleagues from Stanford Research Institute (SRI) in writing the report. It was a very successful collaboration which led to new shared insights and a report that had strong contributions from both sides of the Atlantic.
This year, Professor Mike Sharples, Professor of Education Technology at Open University, approached Professor Looi Chee Kit, Head of Research at the Learning Sciences Lab (LSL) of OER for partnership to produce this year’s report with an Asian perspective. Prof Looi and Research Scientists from LSL Dr Wong Lung Hsiang and Dr Roberto de Roock, together with Dr Elizabeth Koh, Assistant Dean (Research Translation) and Research Scientist at the Centre for Research in Pedagogy and Practice, worked on this shared effort to propose, write and review the entries, with the benefit of producing a shared report that influences policy worldwide.
