Critical Difference of OER ... But

In Higher Education, the lines blur. Research and educational materials combine in teaching and the classroom. It's more complicated and infinitely rich.

Open Access

  • Type of Publishing
  • Research publications
  • Enables widest readership (may not be the most prestigious journal)
  • How “open” depends

Open Educational Resources 

  • Teaching and Learning materials
  • Allow for 5Rs of Open
The %Rs of OER: Revise, remix, retain reuse, redistribute.

The CARE Framework

  1. Contribute: OER stewards actively contribute to efforts, whether financially or via in-kind contributions, to advance the awareness, improvement, and distribution of OER; and
  2. Attribute: OER stewards practice conspicuous attribution, ensuring that all who create or remix OER are properly and clearly credited for their contributions; and
  3. Release: OER stewards ensure OER can be released and used beyond the course and platform in which it was created or delivered; and
  4. Empower: OER stewards are inclusive and strive to meet the diverse needs of all learners, including by supporting the participation of new an non-traditional voices in OER creation and adoption.
