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.
