Knowledge, Learning, Community

Useful literature review that breezes through the subject with a light touch. At virtually any point it could dive more deeply, but the 35 pages read briskly and are a fairly comprehensive overview of the subject. I found the latter parts of the paper less useful - why do we need a 'theoretical framework' to talk about open educational practices? To my mind (and this is a general point) the material itself tells us how it should be discussed; bringing in a framework imposes an external frame of relevance that can be (and is probably) inappropriate for the current domain. Anyhow. I'll take off my "critic's" hat now. Heather Ross describes the context in this short blog post, which should be read prior to reading the review. Image: Wikipedia.
