    1. This taxonomy serves as a useful guide to OER advocates seeking to diversify or tailor their outreach strategy.

      I would also stress that this taxonomy my describe where a person is at a given time, but I have also seen from experience that people move across (up?) this taxonomy, maybe starting out as a consumer and evolving into greater engagement. Not everyone starts (or ends) at the same place.

    2. benefits students

      AND faculty!!!

    3. the goal posts must be placed further than simply cheaper textbooks.

      For me, the goals should always be improved teaching and learning. Everything else is a means to these ends.

    4. Within this broader vision, significant cost savings to students are the least significant benefit of OER.

      Maybe least significant supporting the larger goals of improving teaching and learning, but perhaps most significant as a motivator to initiate change that leads toward those goals.

    1. Politisches Interesse bedeutet eine selektive Aufmerksamkeit gegenüber politischen Objekten und Ereignissen. Zum politischen Interesse gehört die Einstellung, dass im Vergleich zu anderen Lebensbereichen Politik für einen persönlich von Bedeutung ist. Politisches Interesse bewirkt ein Streben, die Merkmale des Gegenstandsbereichs Politik zu verstehen

      Würde alles beim Schreiben eines OER Schulbuches im Unterricht angeregt werden. Cf. DeRosa 2016

    2. Bürgertugenden sind gemeinsinnorientiert, affektiv verankert und handlungsmotivierend. Sie überführen Wissen und Handlungsbereitschaft in tatsächliches politisches Handeln

      Again: OER textbook does that in the class

    1. There is no rush! Don’t worry about producing a beautiful, flawless textbook. Build it in stages across multiple years, and let different cohorts of students contribute in different, layered ways. Make no claims to perfection. Your textbook is a work-in-progress, and it will continually improve as learners engage with it.

      This is a liberating insight: Roll the project over several years. Of course!

    2. People often ask me how students can create textbooks when they are only just beginning to learn about the topics that the textbooks cover.  My answer to this is that unlike many other scholarly materials, textbooks are primarily designed to be accessible to students– to new scholars in a particular academic area or sub-specialty.  Students are the perfect people to help create textbooks, since they are the most keenly tuned in to what other students will need in order to engage with the material in meaningful ways.  By taking the foundational principles of a field– most of which are not “owned” by any prior textbook publisher– and refiguring them through their own lens, student textbook creators can easily tap their market.  They can access and learn about these principles in multiple ways (conventional or open textbooks, faculty lecture and guidance, reading current work in the field, conversations with related networks, videos and webinars, etc.), and they are quite capable, in my opinion, of designing engaging ways to reframe those principles in ways that will be more helpful to students than anything that has come before.

      And I'd say this counts for school students too.

    1. And here’s the magic: we offered this book up to the knowledge commons, and though it is rough and flawed in spots, it is a real contribution on many levels, to many fields, with application for many courses and future students. Public university students generating great work, sending it off to the public to use it as they wish.

      Love how this "magically" emerges from an open pedagogy framework!
