We all work in and around Open Education. What happens as a result of the UNESCO OER Recommendation affects all of us.
This conference is dedicated to hearing from experts, but there are many voices, opinions, and experiences that have not yet been heard. Whether you are a presenter, an attendee or a curious observer, the conversation does not end with #OEGlobal21.
This page gives you the opportunity to share with the Open Education community, your thoughts on each Action Area.
The UNESCO OER Recommendation is a dense document organized into five action areas each with its own set of recommendations. OEGlobal asked members of the community to create a short video to explain one of the five action areas and their importance to their work and open education.
In response, Paola Corti coordinated with female colleagues who are all working on an ERASMUS + project called The Fostering Women to STEM MOOCs (FOSTWOM) to record a video for Recommendation Action Area 1 - Building Capacity.
Paola Corti coordinated with female colleagues who are all working on an ERASMUS + project called The Fostering Women to STEM MOOCs (FOSTWOM) to record a video for Recommendation Action Area 1 - Building Capacity. In the video, in 6 languages, each Open Education practitioner explains the importance of open education to their work, and specifically how they expect the UNESCO OER Recommendation’s focus on Building Capacity to impact them.
