Open Education Resources

European Community, Central Asia and Eastern Europe
High-Level Strategy Workshop

Fondation Maison des sciences de l’Homme, France

Open Society Foundations

by invitation only

FMSH and the Open Society Foundations jointly sponsor a high-level policy workshop to strengthen collaboration and networking in the area of Open Educational Resources (OER) policy development and implementation in the European Community, Eastern Europe, and Central Asia. OER are teaching and learning resources that reside in the public domain or which have been released with an intellectual property license that allows their free use and repurposing by others. This high-level policy workshop will explore the role of OER in the development and improvement of education policy at all levels of government in the European Community, Eastern Europe, and Central Asia with a specific focus on the integration of OER into current educational policy development frameworks and processes. The workshop will explore the local context in Europe, Eastern Europe and Central Asia and generate strategies and ideas to promote the use of OER to achieve increased social and economic inclusion, strengthen civil society, and bolster democratic institutions and practices. The workshop is co-convened by Anne Boyer, professor at University of Lorraine and Senior Advisor for e-education at the French Ministry of Education and Research, and Hal Plotkin, Senior Open Policy Fellow, Creative Commons USA, and former Senior Policy Advisor, Office of the Under Secretary, U.S. Department of Education.
