This article aims to share experience from a Swedish project on the introduction and implementation of

Open Educational Resources (OER) in higher education with both national and international perspectives.

The project, OER – resources for learning, was part of the National Library of Sweden Open Access

initiative and aimed at exploring, raising awareness of and disseminating the use of OER and the resulting

pedagogical advantages for teaching and learning. Central to the project’s activities were a series of regional

seminars which all featured a combination of multi-site meetings combined with online participation. This

combination proved highly successful and extended the reach of the project. In total the project reached

around 1000 participants at its events and many more have seen the recorded sessions.

Several unresolved issues beyond the scope of the project became explicit but which are absolutely crucial

challenges. Firstly, the evolution from OER towards open educational practices (OEP) and open

educational cultures (OEC). OEP and OEC imply the establishment of national and international policies

and strategies where the use of OER is officially encouraged, sanctioned and developed. Secondly it became

explicit that the issue of metadata is crucial for finding OER and facilitating their use and reuse for teachers

and learners. Thirdly, the sustainability of OER must be stimulated by ensuring the creation of material

that can easily be adapted and reused by teachers in other countries and contexts.
