Open educational resources (OER) as a catalyst for innovation (Open Educational Resources: A Catalyst for Innovation)

This chapter focuses on the type of innovation potential inherent in OER for improving teaching and learning and how this potential can be harnessed. Based on the analyses in the other chapters of this report, it formulates 11 specific policy considerations, which should be used to guide decisions by policy makers, and goes on to recommend specific policy actions in four key areas: supporting the provision of OER; supporting the use and adaptation of OER; adapting framework conditions for teaching and learning accordingly; and supporting further research on use, adaptation and sharing of OER.
