Abstract

In this paper, we present an innovative open educational resource (OER) competition for students to suggest and create OERs. The competition is based on a 3E model (Enriching lectures with OERs, Extending classroom learning through OERs, and Elevating student learning with OERs), as well as a flipped learning approach (i.e., students teaching others as teachers). Student learning enhancement is evaluated using nine learning principles/catalysts. Both quantitative and qualitative evaluations are presented and discussed. In particular, the student learning reflections provide valuable insights into how the OER competition can transform student learning (e.g., with reference to the Bloom’s Taxonomy/Model), including their learning attitude. The results indicate that OER competition can provide an effective method to enhance student learning, complementing traditional teaching/learning.
