Cox, Glenda; Trotter, Henry – Open Praxis, 2017

Designing and sharing Open Educational Resources (OERs) requires teachers to develop new competences, in particular with digital resources.

Buckler, Alison; Perryman, Leigh-Anne; Seal, Tim – Open Praxis, 2014
Open educational resources (OER) continue to support the needs of educators and learners globally. However, it is clear that to maximise their potential more focus is needed on reuse and repurposing. Accordingly, adapting OER for local contexts remains one of the greatest challenges of the open education movement, with little written about how to…

Cronin, Catherine; MacLaren, Iain – Open Praxis, 2018
Conceptualisations of open educational practices (OEP) vary widely, ranging from those centred primarily on the creation and use of open educational resources (OER) to broader definitions of OEP, inclusive of but not necessarily focused on OER. The latter, referred to in this paper as "expansive definitions of OEP," encompass open…

Pulker, Hélène – Research-publishing.net, 2013
The use of Open Educational Resources (OERs) to support language teaching and learning in higher education has become standard practice in recent years.
