ROER4D Open Research Toolkit - Meta-synthesis methodology

Research on Open Educational Resources for Development project

The Research on Open Educational Resources for Development (ROER4D) project was a four-year (2013–2017), large-scale networked project which set out to contribute a Global South research perspective on how open educational resources can help to improve access, enhance quality and reduce the cost of education in the Global South. The project engaged a total of 103 researchers in 18 sub-projects across 21 countries from South America, Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia, coordinated by Network Hub teams at the University of Cape Town and Wawasan Open University.

This output forms part of an open research toolkit sharing the conceptual and other tools utilised to conduct the meta-synthesis of the sub-project research findings published in the edited volume, Adoption and Impact of OER in the Global South.
