Fostering Governmental Support for Open Educational Resources Internationally: Project Update
Commonwealth of Learning (COL)
Let me recall that the project has four elements:
- A survey of the world’s governments to determine whether they have, or intend to develop, policies for the use of Open Educational Resources,
- The holding of Regional Policy Forums in six world regions,
- The World OER Congress to be held here from 20-22 June,
- The Paris Declaration that will be presented at the Congress. I shall report on three of these elements: the survey; the regional policy forums; and how the Paris Declaration has evolved with input from the six regional policy forums to become the text that you have in front of you today. ADG-CI will tell you about preparations for the June World Congress.
