Collaboration between teachers has gotten increased attention over the past decades. Concepts as professional learning communities, communities of practices, workplace learning, informal learning and social networks has evolved rapidly. However, little is yet known about the value of communities on teacher learning and changes in practices, especially in relation to open educational resources (OER). Recent research showed that the adoption of OER in Dutch Higher Education is limited. This study focuses on the value of teacher communities in relation to sharing, using and creating OER. Hence, the research question that will be central in this study is formulated as: How does teachers’ interaction and collaboration within a national community in the Netherlands impact teacher learning and their practices with OER? This presentation will focus on the progress of a longitudinal study on teacher learning, interaction and practices in a national community on Nursing. The results of the baseline measurement will be presented. In addition to this, the research design for the follow-up studies is presented and preliminary findings will be shared as well.
