Agenda Document

The UNESCO Recommendation on OER was unanimously adopted in 2019 by 193 UNESCO member states. This milestone offers a unique opportunity to advance open education around the world. Why does it matter? This Recommendation is an official UNESCO instrument that gives national governments a specific list of recommendations to support open education in their countries and to collaborate with other nations.

Creative Commons and OE Global are excited to work together with stakeholders around the world in building open education capacity and effectiveness. As a global community we can fulfill the aims and objectives of the UNESCO Recommendation on OER. In this workshop, participants will work in breakout groups to discuss how to help national governments get started, ramp up, and fully scale the four UNESCO Recommendation on OER areas of action:

* Building capacity of stakeholders to create, access, re-use, adapt and redistribute OER
* Developing supportive policy
* Encouraging effective, inclusive and equitable access to quality OER
* Nurturing the creation of sustainability models for OER

Participants are encouraged to read the UNESCO Recommendation on OER before this session.
