The 2nd World Open Educational Resources (OER) Congress has become a catalyst for global change in OER. We now celebrate that impact together with the European Commission, who have just honored us with their patronage. The Congress continues to strengthen the priority of “Open and innovative education and training, including by fully embracing the digital era”, one out of the 6 new priorities for Education 2020 in Europe, reinforcing the efforts of the European Commission’s Strategic framework – Education & Training 2020. The agenda is geared toward a new, more inclusive vision of education and training up to 2020.
The Latin America and Caribbean OER Regional Consultation was held on 3-4 April, 2017
at the Golden Tulip Paulista Plaza in São Paulo, Brazil .
During the regional consultations, the participants were engaged in group discussions and presented their recommendations. While the process is still in progress, some of the key recommendations emerging out of the four regional consultations are outlined in this news item.
