The Second OER World Congress, held in September 2017 in Ljubljana, Slovenia called on the open education community and governments to move from commitment to action. The “Ljubljana OER Action Plan 2017” is the outcome document of the 2nd World OER Congress and is based on the outputs of the Regional Consultations, a global online consultation of the document in the months leading up to the Congress, and the deliberations of the 2nd World OER Congress. This Action Plan identifies concrete actions to mainstream OER to achieve SDG 4 on Quality Education. The OER Action Plan focuses on five areas for government action and suggests that developing supportive policy environments is one of five areas to OER to reach its full transformative potential for supporting the realization of SDG 4. OER needs to be more integrally a part of educational policies. Join speaker, Amanda Coolidge (BCcampus), as she walks participants through the development of an open policy. This session will share global open educational policies, introduce participants to components of an open education policy, and share best practices for implementation of an open education policy.
