Changes in law (1) and pronounced demands of knowledge on Animal Welfare (2) require a change of paradigm in Animal Welfare Education. A new strategy is recommended, based on network learning involving higher education institutions and other organisations in the production and distribution of learning resources that can be shared openly and free of charge on the internet. Although the trend of Open Educational Resources (OER) is very recent, the development of resources is rapid and vibrant (3). The incentives for engaging in the OER trend at the governmental, institutional, and individual level are presented here and quality control and sustainability are discussed. It should be considered that the EU commission takes the lead and allocates resources for the development of a central repository with OER, as well as a quality assurance strategy.
