ROLE at the World OER Congress

The Paris OER Declaration was formally adopted at the 2012 World Open Educational Resources (OER) Congress held at the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris from 20 – 22 June 2012 (http://www.unesco.org/new/en/communication-and-information/events/calendar-of-events/events-websites/world-open-educational-resources-congress/).

 

Over 550 delegates including representatives of Government, educators, NGOs, and universities attended the Congress which was organized in full partnership with the Commonwealth of Learning (COL) and supported by a generous grant from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation (USA).

Teresa Connolly from the Open University attended the event on behalf of ROLE. A poster was displayed in the exhibition area of the congress about ROLE, promoting two recently created OER courses in OpenLearn: one introducing the project itself (http://tinyurl.com/role-course) and one focusing on Self-Regulated Learning (SRL) (http://tinyurl.com/role-srl-course). Take-away materials about ROLE also proved to be very popular among the delegates.
