For this lightning talk, I wish to provoke thought by questioning assumptions around OER as it is understood by the mainstream. Just as philosophers have long wished us to better understand our relationship to technology, we should now more thoughtfully approach "open" with all its promises including its dangers and risks. This talk will seek to build understanding around the trajectories that are preferable or probable for the OER movement, but also demand consideration for unexpected, radical shifts in law, technology, and society. This video will be edited and include reuse of CC licensed and public domain images and video, creating a collage around the topic of OER and the future.

Learning Outcomes: Viewers will be shown lenses through which alternative futures of OER might be imagined, offering questions and provocations to foster useful discussions.
