On World Teachers' Day: Share stories of teachers transforming education through openness

Join the rest of the world on October 5 for UNESCO’s celebration and honoring of educators through World Teachers’ Day held every years since 1994.

It “commemorates the anniversary of the adoption of the 1966 ILO/UNESCO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers, which sets benchmarks regarding the rights and responsibilities of teachers, and standards for their initial preparation and further education, recruitment, employment, and teaching and learning conditions.”

It is a day to celebrate how teachers are transforming education but also to reflect on the support they need to fully deploy their talent and vocation, and to rethink the way ahead for the profession globally

The 2022 theme for World Teachers’ Day is "The transformation of education begins with teachers” – and here in the OEGlobal community a significant means for that transformation is through open educational practices.

Please respond, celebrate, and share efforts of teachers who are part of this transformation through openness.
