Hybridised Open Educational Resources and Rotation Based Learning

Traditional approaches within higher education focus almost entirely on the student as a research producer. Little attention is given to training students to see themselves as research users; the resulting research output from the academic community thereafter reflects this skewed perspective.

In this vision paper, we outline why an overt emphasis on the producer, at the expense of the user, role within the higher education system is detrimental to the viability of the resulting research output. We propose a new educational model to address this issue, employing a novel approach we term rotation based learning (RBL), which harnesses Open Educational Resources (OER) to deliver in-person education in a digitally advancing research landscape, coordinated over a broad geographical region.
