Comas-Quinn, Anna and Fitzgerald, Alannah: Open Educational Resources in Language Teaching and Learning

The following case studies summarise the development and findings of two projects that have sought to harness openness for the benefit of teachers and learners in the area of language teaching in higher education. Both projects sought to introduce Open Educational Resources (OER) and Practices (OEP) by focusing on supporting and guiding teachers as they develop the necessary literacies and practices to capitalise on the affordances of new open tools and technologies.

Open educational resources made a dramatic appearance with the 2002 debut of MIT's Open Courseware initiative.In the roughly 10 years since, OERs have not noticeably disrupted the traditional business model of higher education or affected daily teaching approaches at most institutions.Four major hurdles seem the likeliest hindrances to adoption of OERs: discoverability, quality control, bridging the last mile, and acquisition.OERs could unify and advance the essentially disconnected developments in digital textbooks and MOOCs by establishing a global enterprise learning content management system.
