Open Education in Geography: Research, Outcomes, and Efficacy

Type: Paper
Sponsor Groups: Geography Education Specialty Group
Organizers: Caitie Finlayson
Chairs: Caitie Finlayson


This session explores research on open educational resources in geography. Open educational resources have gained momentum nationwide. Within geography, a number of open resources exist, to include textbooks, GIS platforms, and other educational tools. Research into the effectiveness of these materials in geography courses remain limited, however. This session includes papers that examine the use of open educational resources in geography from an evidence-based perspective, exploring the outcomes and efficacy of these materials. We specifically welcome papers that explore an element of the COUP framework used by the Open Education Group: cost, outcomes, usage, and/or perceptions.

This session is co-sponsored by the Geography Education specialty group and the National Center for Research in Geography Education.
