Based on the concept of a continuum of openness, this session will respond to the Australian contextualisation of Open Educational Practices (OEP) in higher education, and openness more broadly within different institutions. This will be undertaken through brief cases of implementation at the panellists’ institutions, with an invitation to the audience to expand, and contribute to, the ongoing Australian OEP dialogue. The complexity, considerations for engagement, and practical examples will be considered to catalyse discussion with the audience. The panel will also discuss possible challenges facing practitioners and their institutions, and opportunities to explore future directions, as well as the roles the OEP SIG, as part of the ASCILITE community, could play in progressing and nurturing OEP developments in Australia.
