Reading this post feels a bit like reading one side of a conversation. David Wiley writes of responses to his recent post about the role of practice in learning, but with only four comments, and no links to other responses, we are left guessing a bit, especially about the responses that "called the discussion of practice unimaginative and accused me of underestimating the pedagogical change that OER is capable of catalyzing." Wiley's response to this criticism is to point out that "faculty can't re-imagine their pedagogy in the context of the affordances of OER if they're not using OER." I don't think that's strictly true; people can imagine the effects of things they're not currently doing. Indeed, they're not likely to start using OER unless they can predict at least some of the outcomes in advance.
