ABSTRACT
En las últimas décadas, se han producido una serie de cambios estructurales fundamentales (tanto internamente, en el seno de la educación superior, como fuera de ella) que han transformado el carácter de las universidades. El aumento del interés generalizado en los recursos educativos abiertos (REA) es, a la vez, una presión añadida a esos cambios y, quizá, también una clave potencial para dar respuesta a la demanda creciente de educación superior.
En esta sección monográfica sobre las iniciativas en el ámbito de los REA en Oceanía, los docentes muestran cómo se están abordando los retos y las oportunidades en esta región a través de la innovación y/o la colaboración.
Esta sección monográfica es, asimismo, un marco para la comunicación del conocimiento y el intercambio de distintos puntos de vista, además del diálogo, no solo entre los países de la región, sino también, posiblemente, entre Oceanía y Europa. Las últimas novedades y tendencias en los REA, así como la emergencia de las prácticas educativas abiertas (PEA) en la región Asia-Pacífico, son un fiel reflejo de los avances que se están produciendo en todo el mundo.
