Open Educational Resources (OER) have a central role to play in Education 2030 in the framework of Sustainable Development Goal 4 which calls for the international community to “Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all with its key pillars of access, equity and inclusion.”
Together with UNESCO, Slovenia is inviting other countries to collaborate, explore and exchange good practices in the digital transformation of education. From 18 – 20 September 2017, Slovenia will host and organize the 2nd World OER Congress in Ljubljana. Congress website (under construction): http://www.oercongress.org/. In preparation for the congress, the Commonwealth of Learning, in partnership with UNESCO and the Government of Slovenia will conduct follow-up surveys of world governments and key stakeholders, and will hold regional consultations.
