Abstract

A discipline-based approach to creating, sharing and reusing open content has yielded fuitful results for languages in the UK context, both in the provision of resources for learning, teaching and/or research (LORO, OpenLIVES), and as a catalyst to pedagogical reflection and professional development (Community Café, On-Stream). This chapter will introduce the concepts of Open Educational Resources (OER) and Open Educational Practices (OEP), explore the benefits of sharing and reusing open content in relation to teacher professional development and provide practitioners with practical guidance to get started on the road to embracing 'openness'.
