  4. 4. Support: OER Infokit
  5. 5. Diversity of Approaches <ul><li>“ The range of different models/approaches to OER present challenges for the educational community as no one simple model exists and each stakeholder group has different motivations for engaging - either in developing, releasing or using OERs in learning and teaching activities. These complexities make it difficult to come up with quick one-stop definitions, guides or summaries. The lack of a common vocabulary means that people are still asking fundamental questions about use, re-use and re-purposing of learning resources and about the nature of the concept 'open' itself” </li></ul>Sneak Preview of Open Practice Across Sectors Report

What do creators want to do with it? Is it sustainable? How can we best encourage discovery and use of OER? How can we extend and grow existing approaches to OER? What do users want to do with it? Is this sustainable? How can we use OER and related practices to meet identified strategic and cultural needs? How can technology support these practices and use cases? What does everyone want to do with it? Is this sustainable?

Lifelong learning! Saves us from having to watch “countdown” of an afternoon.” </li></ul><ul><li>   </li></ul>
  16. 16. Directions: OER and OEP Across Sectors <ul><li>Hot off the press: </li></ul><ul><li>“ Considering practice across sectors highlights differences and unique aspects but also identifies similarities and opportunities for sharing and learning across sectors. Opening cross-sector dialogue has been identified as being of major value for staff involved in UKOER projects. Many UKOER projects included partners from other sectors. Educational sectors involved in the programme were predominantly HE and HE in FE, although some included schools. The Adult and Community sector and Independent learning have also been flagged as important to include in educational sector considerations.” </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
