“Collaborative practices that include the
creation, use, and reuse of OER, as well as
pedagogical practices employing
participatory technologies and social
networks for interaction, peer-learning,
knowledge creation, and empowerment

See also Cronin & MacLaren (2018)
“Teaching and learning practices where
