Sharing: open educational resources for language teachers
The use of Open Educational Resources (OER) and Open Educational Practices (OEP) in language learning and teaching has become increasingly relevant in recent years. In this chapter, Comas-Quinn and Borthwick show the potential that the open education movement offers for language teaching and learning, and for acting as a catalyst to change teachers’ practice. They give examples of how open practices might be adopted to the benefit of learners and teachers. The authors outline the advantages of engaging with OER and the opportunities it affords for teacher professional development, and also provide examples of online spaces in which OER can be found and shared. The chapter concludes with guidance on how to get started in open practice and includes a reflective task to act as a focus for the first steps into open educational practice

Abstract

The use of Open Educational Resources (OER) and Open Educational Practices (OEP) in language learning and teaching has become increasingly relevant in recent years. In this chapter, Comas-Quinn and Borthwick show the potential that the open education movement offers for language teaching and learning, and for acting as a catalyst to change teachers’ practice. They give examples of how open practices might be adopted to the benefit of learners and teachers. The authors outline the advantages of engaging with OER and the opportunities it affords for teacher professional development, and also provide examples of online spaces in which OER can be found and shared. The chapter concludes with guidance on how to get started in open practice and includes a reflective task to act as a focus for the first steps into open educational practice
