Abstract

The following case studies summarise the development and findings of two projects that have sought to harness openness for the benefit of teachers and learners in the area of language teaching in higher education. Both projects sought to introduce Open Educational Resources (OER) and Practices (OEP) by focusing on supporting and guiding teachers as they develop the necessary literacies and practices to capitalise on the affordances of new open tools and technologies.

The first case study on the LORO project focuses on the development of an open repository to make available language teaching OER, and the subsequent engagement activities designed to embed its use at the Department of Languages, at the UK Open University.

The second case study from the TOETOE project reports on issues related to using language corpora in light of new developments with open technologies and open practices.
