I have a rough idea of who would be useful to interview, but thought it might be useful to very quickly visualise how they relate to the texts. This might be a good way of mapping and explaining the selection of interviewees – by the way they connect to the texts. But as mentioned before it might be better to to focus on the interconnection of the texts – following them. The purpose of the interviews would be to tease out more about the texts; about the networks around them; and about the way OER is enacted around them – the influence they have on the way OER is practiced (argh – I feel like I still need to stabilise the way I talk about this?).

The interviewees I’m considering at the moment are:

Position Person
EUSA VPAA Imogen Wilson
Director LTW Melissa Highton
Cetis/Open Scotland Lorna Campbell
GCU Sheila MacNeill
UoE strategy Jeff Haywood
