MOVING @ Pacific Regional Consultation on Open Educational Resources (UNESCO)
May 29, 2017 - May 30, 2017
The Commonwealth of Learning held six regional consultations in the lead up to the 2nd World Open Educational Resources (OER) Congress, which held in Ljubljana, Slovenia, from 18-20 September 2017. The regional consultations were organised in partnership with UNESCO and the Government of Slovenia, and with the generous support of The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. Each regional consultation was further organised in partnership with a ministry or other agency, as appropriate, in the respective host country. The overall theme of the regional consultations was “OER for Inclusive and Equitable Quality Education: From Commitment to Action”, reflecting a strong focus on the role of OER in achieving Sustainable Development Goal 4. This was the last regional consultation that was organised on OER, before the World OER Congress in Ljubljana. Mitja Jermol (from JSI) was invited to participate at the Pacific Regional Consultation on OER where he gave a plenary presentation regarding the planned 2nd World OER Congress and its objectives. Among others, Mitja Jermol pointed out that the congress would provide opportunities for the technology and business sectors to showcase best practices. Finally he gave a comprehensive overview of research at JSI where he introduced the research and technology projects connected to education and OER, including the MOVING project.
