Curating and Remixing Open Education Resources in Mathematics Teacher Education. I discuss my gradual scaling up of the use of Open Education and growth in Open Education Practices in K-9 mathematics teacher education courses in Alberta and more recently in Ontario. I offer the metaphor of curating as an important frame for the necessary skill set for instructors and teachers in working with OER. I present examples of student remixes and novel creations as well as challenges. Finally I draw out some implications for student assessment and course design within a fecund space of OER abundance.
