5 Moving forward

OER have the potential to support teachers and teacher educators who want to transform education and the experience of students in schools. TESS-India OER are designed to encourage teachers to move towards more active teaching and learning approaches in their classrooms.

As teachers enact the practice in the TESS-India OER and come to know their students and value what they bring to the classroom, they will start to innovate; meanwhile, students will learn more, enjoy their learning and become lifelong learners. But teachers need support in order to access and use the OER, and to persist with changes in their classroom practices. Change is brought about by practitioners like you, acting as advocates and collaborating with colleagues.

Hopefully this MOOC is just the start of a change process in which you and your colleagues develop your expertise with OER to drive forward improvements in teaching and learning for all students.
