OpeningupSlovenia events at 2nd World OER Congress

OpeningupSlovenia is co-organizing satellites at the 2nd World Open Educational Resources (OER) Congress, Ljubljana, Slovenia, 18 – 20 September 2017

This is the result of the Slovenian approach of holistically adopting open education. The three satellites Artificial intelligence in OER, OER Policies, European technologies and Opening up Balkans are the latest activities in a series of efforts to mainstream OER. With these actions Slovenia is fully committed and is taking actions to push forward the global agenda on OER.

Slovenian case: From Commitment to Action in open education and OER

During the work towards the Congress, the Slovenian government has translated its practice in implementing OER into a brochure. This short policy document is intended to showcase other governments at the Congress how Slovenia is coping with the idea of opening up education. We have identified 5 major areas across all fields of education. Work on these ‘exemplars’ has just begun and here on the OpeningupSlovenia website you can see the latest updates.
