OER as Educational Philosophy

Here are the slides from my presentation to the Computers and Learning Research Group.  My basic argument can be summarised as follows

  1. Discourse about Open Educational Resources (OERs) has reached a point of maturity and needs to be (at least) supplemented with explicit focus on Open Educational Practices (OEPs)
  2. Focus on OEPs weakens the link between OERs and learning objects
  3. OEPs are potentially much further-reaching and more radical than OERs
  4. While OERs themselves are not aligned with a specific educational philosophy, there are distinct values associated with the OER movement
  5. The Enlightenment concept of education as Bildung may help to flesh out a distinctive educational philosophy pertaining to OERs/OEPs
