The Nursing program at Dalarna University in Sweden has been awarded with the EADTU´s E- xcellence Associates Label (Ubachs 2009). The quality award involved the creation of a roadmap for continues development of e-learning and implementation of OER (Santesson et al., 2012). Thus, the overall goal with the IMPOERS research project was to introduce and implement the use of OER as a pedagogical framework in the nursing program at Dalarna University. The project aimed to describe how and in what way OER can be implemented and used for learning. OER was implemented in a course within the nursing program and effects and the implementation process was studied with a mixed-method approach using questionnaires and interviews. The project focused on students’ participation, knowledge, empowerment, responsibility over their own learning processes and attitudes of using OER.
