EADTU - European Association of Distance Teaching Universities

Towards a new OER declaration in 2017

EADTU amongst others focusses on open education and as such strongly supports activities related to OER, MOOCs and other educational provisions that enables access to quality education to all in need for higher education. Therefore EADTU supports the efforts of UNESCO and COL in their preparation of 2nd OER World Congress later this year. In this context we ask you to complete the present survey on OER.

In addition EADTU wants to stress the importance for stronger uptake and positioning of OER in the near future. As such EADTU presents the following open statement as a contribution to European consultancy session in Malta 23-24 February 2017. This statement is prepared together with Marco Kalz who will represent EADTU during this session.
