East Central University's Linscheid Library - in partnership with Oklahoma State University Libraries, Redlands Community College, and the Oklahoma Council of Online Learning Excellence - proposes a three-year project to create and disseminate a research methodology for evaluating the efficacy of Open Educational Resources (OER) in increasing lifelong learning competencies. The goals of the project are to develop a research toolkit for studying the efficacy of OER on increasing lifelong learning competencies and to develop an OER for librarians on how to create robust research methodologies for studying teaching and learning. The project was created to address the lack of robust research methodology in OER efficacy studies and the lack of librarian knowledge in conducting research.
