As part of the lead up to OER16 Conference, Catherine Cronin is asking for responses to the statement:
For me striving to be an open practitioner in terms of academic research and practice makes sense as an approach to connect me as much as possible to people, ideas, networks, research, conversations etc. (these are obviously not discrete categories). In my experience it is by sharing ideas (even at initial stages, though I still find this quite difficult/scary) that you find out perspectives you had not thought about and others are able to make connections for – and with – you to ideas, scholars, research or sometimes simply articulating an argument that you have been struggling with.
So in some ways I guess open is the answer to the question: how can we best think out loud to inform, develop and share what we do.
