Agents Provocateurs

Supporting OERs is not simply about supporting the production of open educational resources, it’s about integrating these into the metabolism of the organization. The use of OERs in education involves far more than the mere presentation of OERs, and that therefore learning is seen as rather more than the mere acquisition of the content contained in these OERs.

The purpose of an open educational resource is not merely to transfer information, it is to stimulate this creative production in the recipient. Teachers and educational leaders should regard themselves not merely as passive transferers of received content to students, but instead as agents provocateurs.
