UNESCO is drafting an Open Educational Resources (OER) Recommendation.
When I have a moment with my #openscot hat on I'm taking this back around the Scottish agencies who still don't get open education .
I hope we get some more engagement in this - for sake of learners and Scottish Education we need a proper cross sectoral policy position on this . Good to see ALT pulling together a UK Response This is a useful vehicle for folks who want to make an individual or an institutional response.
This is an official UNESCO instrument that will both advise national governments on how to support open education in their countries and report on those efforts.
The draft Recommendation text has been prepared by a group of open education experts from UNESCO, researchers and practitioners from all world regions. The OER Recommendation builds on the Ljubljana OER Action Plan, a product of the 2nd World OER Congress.
The online consultation process is now open. This is an invitation to contribute to the draft. In addition to providing your own comments, please share this opportunity through your networks.
The text is available in English and French:
The deadline for submission of contributions is: 1 June, 2018.
