Our new article on Implementation of open educational resources in a nursing programme: experiences and reflections

Marie Elf, Ebba Ossiannilsson, Maria Neljesjö & Monika Jansson are the authors for this new article on Implementation of open educational resources in a nursing programme: experiences and reflections in Open Learning: The Journal of Open, Distance and eLearning (2015) Vol. 30, No. 3, 252–266.

The IMPOER project (implementation of open educational resources, OER) aimed to implement OER in a nursing programme at Dalarna University, Sweden. The university and its nursing programme have long engaged in e-learning, and the nursing programme has recently been awarded the European Association of Distance Teaching Universities E-xcellence Associates Quality Label. The quality award was based on the creation of a roadmap for the continuous development of e-learning and the implementation of OER. The results of the study illustrated that overall, the students and the educators were positive about using OER. They considered that this approach was a new way of learning, and they appreciated the fact that OER were free and easy to access. However, they felt overwhelmed by the amount of material that was available and they were concerned about quality. If the use of OER is to be sustainable, a change in attitudes and practices among students and teachers is likely needed regarding the use of resources on the web.
