Collaboration, Coherence and Capacity-Building: The Role of DSpace in Supporting and Understanding the TLRP
Procter, Richard
Technology, Pedagogy and Education, v16 n3 p269-288 Oct 2007
This paper describes how the Teaching and Learning Research Programme (TLRP) has implemented and applied DSpace as a digital repository for project and programme outputs, including published articles, conference papers, research reports, briefings and press releases. The DSpace repository has become a major element in the user engagement strategy of the programme. The OAI-PMH (Open Archives Initiative) interface provides a basis for the development of a number of user applications and services for projects and other interested groups, including search interfaces, dynamic web content, RSS feeds and other services. These have also formed the basis of collaboration and communication between the TLRP and other research programmes, indexes and resources. The TLRP aims to enable collaboration between researchers and to foster individual, institutional and sector-wide research capacity. The OAI interface has been used as the basis of data visualisation tools, allowing the identification of distinctive patterns of collaboration across the diverse projects of the programme. The paper will conclude with some reflections on the relevance of the output of these tools to teachers and their practice. (Contains 6 notes, 1 table, and 9 figures.)
