What is the added value of OER from a (small) language teaching perspective?

These and other topics will be addressed in a seminar taking place on the 7th and 8th of October 2015 in Leeuwarden (the Netherlands). Both researchers, educators and policymakers in the field of regional and minority languages are welcome to participate in the seminar.
