Abstract

This poster represents my masters research with students involved in a volunteer social outreach education project in Cape Town, South Africa. In the thesis I investigated the potential for open education resources to be used in social outreach projects. I explore the perceptions of six students participating in the project to investigate the main issues with the reuse of open educational resources. Through a curriculum development workshop and a series of open ended interviews, the students reflect on how they use and reuse digital educational resources and share some of the challenges they experience in curating and reusing educational resources for use within their organization. Additionally, a newly introduced online curriculum database shared by all curriculum stakeholders is explored, with a focus on how the system facilitates materials’ reuse. The collected data is analysed qualitatively within the framework of an activity system (Engëstrom, 1987) and the primary systemic tensions are discussed using the concept of contradictions.
