🔴 Keynote: The UNESCO Recommendation on OER – Quo Vadis?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The UNESCO OER Recommendation is an exciting major milestone for open education as it shows governments around the world support moving ahead with OER adoption and implementation. Having high level support for OER will really help the many initiatives underway at the grassroots level to flourish and grow.
Implementation at this kind of scale is a big undertaking. In support of that effort UNESCO has formed a dynamic coalition of member states and open education advocates to create roadmaps and plans. In addition, a Network of Open Orgs, made up of organizations who have long played a role in enabling open education around the world, have come together to join forces in providing support for implementation including mapping out existing services and resources that can help.
My Keynote will provide everyone with an opportunity to position their own open education work within the context of the Recommendation and to learn from the work of others. Annotations supplement the UNESCO OER Recommendation with practical advice from the field adding valuable lessons learned and insights.
