  5. 5. An ecological, rhizomatic, learning-centred and scholarly view of experienced knowledge in the open Open Educational RelationshipsOpen culture Inspired by the work of Catherine Cronin, Frances Bell, Maha Bali, Bonnie Stewart, Martin Weller, Dave Cormier and others whose work include critical perspectives on openness, digital scholarship, networked identities/practices and connected learning. A shifting discourse from • ‘rights*’ to ‘expectation’ or ‘responsibility’ • ‘ownership of content’ to common interest, space, identities and practice • valuing knowledge to valuing ecology and connection *Wiley’s 5Rs uses the idea of rights
  6. 6. Open Educational Relationships [OERs]: rethinking the 5 Rs? Actively being open in your practice to others engaging with you, being open to network possibilities including repositioning of your practice, assuming others are open. Reuse Acknowledging in your practice the (potential) benefit from a repositioning or re- contextualisation of your practice in critical (positive) ways or expansion of network connections. Revise Incorporating, adding meaning to and multiplying knowledge by using the work of others to generate new ideas, develop and value networks through continual engagement in different spaces. Remix The expectation of divergence, that networked nodes redirect trains of thought. Awareness, consideration and negotiation of risks associated with sharing your practice and navigating different networks and spaces. Recognition that connection also means disconnection. Redistribute Ecology of connected open scholarship facilitating the growth and exchange of knowledge beyond the original network/connections/spaces, offering kindness and support in the exchange/network/space Retain Inspired by the work of Catherine Cronin, Frances Bell, Maha Bali, Bonnie Stewart, Martin Weller, Dave Cormier and others whose work include critical perspectives on openness, digital scholarship, networked identities/practices and connected learning.
