Webinar 03 Dynamic OER Coalition

The UNESCO OER Dynamic Coalition webinar will examine three questions:

  • Why is the OER Recommendation even more relevant in the age of Covid?
  • What have been bottlenecks to implementation?
  • What have been the solutions and innovations to its implementation?

Speakers include the members of the Advisory group of the OER Dynamic Coalition. The speakers will share the results of the Dynamic Coalition’s activities in supporting the implementation of the UNESCO OER Recommendation.

La Coalition dynamique pour les REL de l’UNESCO organisera un webinaire pendant la conférence mondiale Open Education. Ce webinaire examinera 3 questions :

  • Pourquoi la Recommandation REL est-elle encore plus pertinente à l’ère du Covid ?
  • Quels ont été les goulots d’étranglement de la mise en œuvre, et quelles ont été les solutions et les innovations pour sa mise en œuvre ?
  • Les intervenants partageront les résultats des activités de la Coalition dynamique pour soutenir la mise en œuvre de la Recommandation REL de l’UNESCO.

Les intervenants comprennent les membres du groupe consultatif de la Coalition dynamique pour les REL.

Nice to hear @Zeynep about specific UNESCO efforts to promote OER work in languages other than English. Linguistic diversity is such an important basis from which to adopt and adapt resources.
(Personally, I’m particularly interested in hearing more about the Sahel initiative. Hoping we can bring about collaborations between Quebec and West Africa.)

Interesting point @jeffwgallant on open resources remixed through broadcast television programs.

In Quebec, over decades, «téléuniversité» has been an important driver for the development of relevant material. Much of those resources were funded by the provincial government, few of them are explicitly licensed as open. For instance, Université TÉLUQ - Formation à distance (teluq.ca) has a strong basis in television-based university courses (including Massive Courses with 150k concurrent learners, getting printed material by mail, back in the 1970s).

There’s work being done with Savoir média. Bringing back the UNESCO recommendation to bear on such work could help ensure these television programs can become as openly licensed as possible.

Just to make sure…

Anybody knows if we’ll get access to the recording? @cogdog ? @Zeynep ?

Most of the videos have been shared as part of the OEG channel on YouTube and embedded here on Connect. Since there are specific rules about simultaneous interpretation, it wouldn’t be surprising if this session’s recording were to be excluded from the list.

Me too, we are trying! That webinar was hosted by UNESCO, not us, so we cannot post it until they do. I have been checking their YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/c/UNESCO/videos

We are trying to request this from UNESCO. Standy by!
