This publication showcases some of the ways in which practitioners in different settings are engaging with the concept of openness in language teaching and learning. It contains contributions on: open tools for collaboration; sharing resources; sharing practices; collaborative learning and student-generated content; and learner autonomy. We hope it will provide ideas for language teachers who might want to dip their toes into the world of Open Educational Resources (OER) and Open Educational Practices (OEP), or maybe experiment further.
