As Open Data is become a matter of interest for researchers and scholars, with some members of this group we have conducted some preliminary research regarding the potential of Open Data as teaching and learning resources to build bridges between research - policy - science and governance in academia.

@leohavemann and I edited a book which contains case studies from Italy, UK and Canada with a chapter written by @chiaracio & @luigi_reggi http://education.okfn.org/open-data-as-open-educational-resources-case-studies-of-emerging-practice/ and a paper http://www.openpraxis.org/index.php/OpenPraxis/article/view/233, so if you are interested in sharing or gathering good practices please add your ideas and research here.
