Email from Andreia Inamorato: "I'd like to draw your attention to a research report recently published by the European Commission Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS) Overview and Analysis of Practices with Open Educational Resources in Adult Education in Europe The report identifies over 150 OER initiatives and classifies them. It also brings to light some of the tensions that drive the development of open educational practices in adult learning." The recommendations from the report (82 page PDF) are in one sense overly broad, but are also telling: "Recognise that 'learning' takes place everywhere," for example, and "Think of OER more broadly than as content."
