Diffusion and adoption of OER


This paper provides insight into how to improve the diffusion of OER through (formal) institutional networks. It does so by examining two cases: (1) MORIL – the Multilingual Open Resources for Independent Learning task force, a Network of Practice that acted as a space for sharing and developing institutional OER strategies, and (2) TESSA – The Teacher Education in Sub Saharan Africa programme, an R&D initiative for OER and course design guidance for teachers and teacher-educators working in Sub-Saharan African countries. The paper reflects on institutional development practices regarding the dimensions and models of collaboration and innovation within communities and networks of practice. A frame of reference is used, which aids the analysis of the OER diffusion and adoption processes in each case.
