The UNESCO OER Recommendation : Creating Effective Digital Ecosystems for Inclusive Knowledge Societies
This High-Level dialogue will examine how Governments can leverage the 2019 UNESCO OER Recommendation UN instrument.
The discussions will centre on how the Recommendation can guide the crucial digital ecosystems needed for the establishment and maintenance of free, high quality open educational resources and platforms.
OER are recognised as powerful solutions for transforming education, since they enable the expansion of access to quality, innovative, free, accessible, educational resources in different languages, for teachers and learners. To achieve this objective, it is vital to put in place robust mechanisms for OER capacity building, policy development, quality assurance, accessibility and sustainability for educational stakeholders.
The session will also emphasise the need to leverage the UNESCO OER Recommendation 2019 to build stakeholder capacity and the necessity to develop and /implement supportive policies at governmental and institutional levels. This is a solution, a way to ensuring that the innovation and creation, access, reuse, repurposing, adaptation, redistribution, preservation and quality assurance of OER and open digital platforms works.
