One of the questions that I’ve been percolating and discussing with my OpenETC collaborators is the extent can you do open and engage in open education practices without open infrastructure.
Here’s a blog post I want to reference here for myself because of several links in the article.
Honestly, I find it difficult, not only to get past the forces of infrastructure in trying to use OER, but to also soften the active and direct resistance against OERs.
I know I can do more to build an OER presence in my work, but damm does this take a lot of patience and a lot of determination. Often more so than my workload as a teacher allows. For the most part, I act locally.
