OER Africa, an initiative of the South African Institute for Distance Education, plays a leading role in driving the development and use of OER in higher education systems in Africa. With this proposal, OER Africa proposes to work with four African universities to deepen their OER policies and demonstrate how OER practices can transform teaching and learning. OER Africa will pursue a participatory action research agenda to document what it takes to embed OER in these institutions, and will use the findings from this research to inform its advocacy around OER with policymakers and other higher education decision makers across the continent.
