Despite the benefits to the adoption of open textbooks, other OER, and open educational practices, there has not yet been widespread uptake of these materials and methods. (Paradis, 2014) This paper will serve as a review of existing literature, exploring:
● what open education means in current contexts
● what problems the integration of open educational materials may help negate
● what barriers may be impeding the adoption of such materials
● who the stakeholders are and what their roles are in the integration of open materials and practices.
