great post Maha. It is a tricky issue and one I, like many other struggle with everyday. My institution does support open-ness but it is quite elastic shall we say in that. For example despite being the first Uni in Scotland to have an approved OER policy, we (and harking back to Dave and Donna’s alt keynote by that I mean “them” the institutional management are not always fully onboard with open, but because of “us” and our everyday practice of just doing what we can openly it is slowly changing. Maybe that is more sustainable I don’t know but this comment is turning into a bit of a ramble.
