Great post from Sheila Mac Neil on 'How do you mainstream open education 
and OERs?'

"/Whilst I love the simplicity of the slogan "the opposite of open is 
broken" in reality it is a bit more complicated than that. We are still 
a way away from an open by default approach in my institution and I 
suspect many others. There is a cost to open, and many of us don't have 
access to external or internal funds to kickstart and maintain open 


Sheila is collecting examples of mainstream (regular, everyday) use 
and/or creation of OERs by teaching staff in institutions. /How do you 
get and maintain the "open habit"?/ Lots of insightful comments too.
