Edited by the Principal Investigator Cheryl Hodgkinson-Williams and Deputy Principal Investigator Patricia B. Arinto, the peer-reviewed volume is comprised of 13 chapters originating from sub-project research as well as three meta-synthesis and summary chapters. Seven of the chapters are accompanied by openly published datasets, six of which are shared in English on the DataFirst Data Portal and one in Spanish on the Collaborative Co-Creation of Open Educational Resources by Teachers and Teacher Educators in Colombia (coKREA) website.
