The AVU participated in the Research into Open Educational Resources for Development (ROER4D) project sponsored by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) in which it conducted a research study entitled Assessing The impact of OER availability on the emergence of open educational practices in sub-Saharan Africa: The case of an ICT-integrated multinational teacher education program in math and science. The study whose findings will soon be published on the IDRC website investigated the extent of the impact of the availability of OER on the AVU, and impact of availability of AVU OER on Open Educational Practices (OEP) in the institutions in the AVU network. From the findings of the institutions studied, the AVU did help create awareness and build capacities around use and creation of OER across the network. The findings and outputs of this study have implications for policy and practice of the AVU and across its network of partner institutions and beyond to be able to extend the use of OER by strengthening the different dimensions of practice for purposes of improving the quality of teaching and learning in the digital age, and particularly for future teacher training purposes which was the underlying motivation of the study.
