Using Open Education for an Innovative International Cooperation at governmental level
Since 2014, the Mexican government and a network of 9 Mexican universities has been inspired by the French model of 8 digital universities covering all thematics of French higher Education http://univ-numerique.fr/. The Mexican Project CODAES (Communautés numériques d’apprentissage dans l’enseignement supérieur, « Comunidades digitales de Aprentizaje en la Educacion superior ») was born, which has the objective of lauching an ambitious collaboration on OER.

Each thematic is supported by one "traditional" university. There are also transversal thematics such as « international », « indexation » ou « digital skills and competences ».

Since 2016, 3 seminaires have taken place in Paris, Lorraine and Grenoble and in Guadalajara.

The aim of the presentation is to present the deliverable of these collaboration, that are all open to public, in particular in :

- environnement and sustainable developpement : translation into Spanish of a collection of 6 MOOC (UVED/Yucatan),
- Digital skills and competences (PIX - Guadalaja),
- indexation of OER (LOM/MLR) (national working group CNED Poitiers, Colima),
- basic sciences (Unisciel Bordeaux/Guanajuato),
- médecine : developement of studies on geriatrics (UPMC/Nuevo Leon).

Technical Vocational Education and Training: the ‘dark continent’ in OER
Commissioned by UNESCO, a study has been executed with the aim to understand better the potentialities of OER for Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) and to provide Member States and UNESCO, in particular UNESCO-UNEVOC, with recommendations to support the creation and use of OER in TVET. The study was intended to fill the gap both on mapping the landscape of the use of OER and open practices in the field of TVET as well as on policy recommendations to support Member States' efforts in promoting and developing OER.

The study used a mixed methods approach, consisting of a literature review, a survey and semi-structured interviews. The main result from this study is that the general opinion of the usefulness of OER for TVET is not in line with actual programs for adoption of OER. Main causes for this are a low image of TVET at policy level and specific characteristics of TVET teachers/trainers and learners.

In the presentation we will elaborate on this study.
