2nd World OER Congress Logo

Satellite events

In order to seize the moment and maximise impact, a set of thematically connected and focused events to the main sessions of the Congress. These will directly address the obstacles for the mainstreaming of OER by the global educational community: (1) users’ capacity to access, reuse and share OER; (2) issues related to language and culture; (3) ensuring inclusive and equitable access to quality OER; (4) the need to change business models; and (5) the development of supportive policy environments.
