The UNESCO Recommendation on Open Educational Resources (OER) is expected to be adopted by 195 UNESCO member states at the November session of the UNESCO General Conference just days before OE Global19. This is a unique and important milestone offering, if adopted, a major opportunity to advance open education around the world.

This panel will highlight for OE Global19 participants what the Recommendation says including:

Five areas of action:
  1. Building capacity of stakeholders to create, access, use, adapt and redistribute OER
  2. Developing supportive policy
  3. Encouraging inclusive and equitable quality OER
  4. Nurturing the creation of sustainability models for OER
  5. Facilitating international cooperation

Monitoring and reporting:
  • Deploying appropriate research programmes, tools and indicators to measure effectiveness
  • Collecting, presenting, and disseminating progress, good practices innovations and research reports
  • Strategies for monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness and long-term financial efficiency of OER

Panelists will engage in discussion of next steps involved in supporting implementation of the UNESCO OER Recommendation.
