    In the process of examining the themes and patterns that emerged from our research, it became clear that these insights offer us more than just observations; they give us chances to improve. It’s noteworthy that the recurring themes have a very human-centered quality, reinforcing the crucial role of human experience and collaboration within the broader context of open education.

This entails integrative worldviews into not only OER materials, methodologies, and research but also ensuring that a social justice lens is applied.
