Mainstreaming the use of Open Educational Practices (OEP) will really transform education

The OPAL project (http://www.oer-quality.org/ ) has examined the concept of open educational practices (OEP) over the last two years. In this regard, a number of instruments, including the OEP Guidelines and Registry have been developed. This debate will examine if this concept really represents a transformative evolution for teaching and learning, and if so how.
