OER have become mainstream in higher education institutions in the UK for what has been claimed to be their potential to transform education (Tuomi, 2013). Among the potential benefits of OER is the claim that the quality of teaching and learning materials can improve when they are made available as OER (D’Antoni, 2009). In general, OER advocates claim that as teachers understand the importance of continuous questioning and improvement of their resources and practices, they will share their experiences and lessons learnt. Through OER, teachers should make suggestions on how to better foster the development of students’ skills and competences as well as their own, and therefore, the overall quality of teaching should improve.
Based on the findings of a doctoral thesis exploring OER reuse for online language teaching for distance learners, this Action Lab will give the opportunity to participants to present examples of OER that have been reused and adapted for local contexts and to reflect on the potentials of OER reuse in terms of teachers' professional development and transformation of teaching practices and beliefs.
