The survey, Awareness and Use of Open Educational Resources (OER) in Ontario, was conducted by eCampusOntario in spring 2018. The purpose of the research was to learn more about resource elements of post-secondary teaching practice in Ontario including: the types of resources educators use, the key decision-making criteria educators use when selecting resources, educator awareness about OER, and actual use of OER – including open textbooks. Findings from this research will help inform eCampusOntario programming and partnerships with member institutions as the potential of open practice is explored.
