The ENCORE+ Quality Transparency Framework (ENCORE QTF)

Developing a Quality Framework for OER Repositories
Quality is one of the most deciding factors for the uptake of OER (Andrade et al., 2011; Ehlers, 2011). This was concluded by the OPAL initiative, which ran from 2010 to 2011 and focused on the provision of innovative Open Educational Practices and the promotion of quality, innovation and transparency in higher and adult education (Andrade et al., 2011; Ehlers, 2011). Since then, a number of studies have been conducted and published which stress the importance of quality in relation to OER uptake. Transparency of quality also remains crucial for the wider adoption, usage and development of OER (Zawacki-Richter et al., 2022). The ENCORE+ project took this as a starting point to consult with European expert stakeholders of OER repositories about their view on how quality for OER repositories can be enhanced.
