Extending the Territory: From Open Educational Resources to Open Educational Practices
Ehlers, Ulf-Daniel
Journal of Open, Flexible and Distance Learning, v15 n2 p1-10 2011
This article examines the findings of the recent OPAL report "Beyond OER: Shifting Focus from Resources to Practices". In doing so, it defines current understanding of open educational resources and open educational practices, and highlights the shift from open content to open practice. The article includes a framework for supporting open educational practices. The conclusions emphasise that open access is a necessary but not sufficient condition for the opening of education, and foreshadows ongoing moves toward changes in educational architectures that promote increased uptake of open educational resources and wider application of open education.
