Conceptualising OEP: A review of theoretical and empirical literature in Open Educational Practices

Catherine Cronin, Iain MacLaren, Open Praxis, Apr 30, 2018
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is a taxonomy more than anything but also "aims to provide a useful synthesis of OEP literature for education researchers and practitioners." The authors assert "one or more of the following bodies of work were cited in all subsequent academic literature in the area of OEP:

  1. OLCOS (Open eLearning Content Observatory Services) project (2006-2007)
  2. OPAL (Open Education Quality) initiative (2010-2011)
  3. UKOER programme (2009-2012)
  4. CILT (Centre for Innovation in Learning and Teaching) research, UCT (2009-present)."

This suggests to me that their focus was a bit narrow (surely discussion of open educational practices existed outside reference to these initiatives - like this one, for example, or this one, or this one, or even this one, or for that matter our discussions about MOOCs from 2008 and forward, all of which address open educational practices (if not the canonical version offered in this article)).
