Keywords: Student use of OER

The use of Open Educational Resources (OER) has the potential to make significant impact upon medical education, but the understanding, use and opinions of OER amongst Australian medical students has not been described in the literature. In order to understand these factors, students and staff within the School of Medicine at University of Tasmania were surveyed. The project was carried out as part of the 2014 Students as Change Agents initiative, through the Student evaluation, review and reporting unit (SERRU) of the University of Tasmania.
