Language education faculty face myriad challenges in finding teaching resources that are suitable, of high quality, and allow for the modifications needed to meet the requirements of their course contexts and their learners. The article elaborates the grassroots model of “produsage” (a portmanteau of “production” and “usage”) as a way of imagining a movement toward the use and creation of open educational resources (OER) for language learning. Through a set of examples of video resources that fill a need for authentically compelling language learning materials, the authors demonstrate the potential of produsage to engage teachers and learners around digital resources, to the benefit of language teaching and learning. In support of this grassroots model, the authors propose practices and policies to address challenges involved in engaging teachers and learners around OER in higher education.

Recursos Educativos Abiertos (REA) “produsuarios” como un modelo de apoyo para la enseñanza y aprendizaje de idiomas Resumen: Profesores de lenguas se enfrentan a numerosos retos en la búsqueda de recursos didácticos adecuados, de alta calidad, y que permiten las modificaciones necesarias para cumplir con los requisitos de sus contextos y sus alumnos. Este artículo presenta el modelo de base de “produsuario” (un acrónimo de “producción” y “uso”) como una forma de imaginar un movimiento hacia el uso y la creación de recursos educativos abiertos (REA) para el aprendizaje de idiomas. A través de un conjunto de ejemplos de recursos de vídeo que atienden la necesidad de materiales de aprendizaje de idiomas auténticos y convincentes, los autores demuestran el potencial de los produsuarios para profesores y estudiantes en el uso de los recursos digitales, en beneficio de la enseñanza y aprendizaje de idiomas. En apoyo de este modelo de base, los autores proponen prácticas y políticas para hacer frente a los retos de conectar los profesores y estudiantes en torno a los REA en la educación superior.

Recursos Educacionais Abertos (REA) “produsuarios” como um modelo de apoio para o ensino e aprendizagem de línguas Resumo: Professores de línguas enfrentam muitos desafios na busca de recursos pedagógicos adequados, de alta qualidade, que permitam cumprir com as exigências dos seus contextos e as modificações necessária para seus alunos. Este artigo apresenta o modelo base “produsuarios” (acrónimo de “produção” e “utilização) como uma maneira de imaginar um movimento em direção ao uso e criação de recursos educacionais abertos (REA) para aprendizagem de línguas. Através de um conjunto de exemplos de vídeo que abordam a necessidade de materiais de aprendizagem da língua autênticos e convincentes, os autores demonstram o potencial do “produsuario” para professores e alunos no uso de recursos digitais para o benefício da educação e aprendizagem de línguas. Em apoio a este modelo básico, os autores propõem práticas e políticas para enfrentar os desafios de conectar professores e alunos em torno dos REA no ensino superior.
