What’s being celebrated in the #YearOfOpen are three anniversaries:
2007 – 10 years ago educators crafted the Cape Town Open Education Declaration
We applaud the pioneers and ask that we continue to work toward a more open culture. There is so much to be thankful. What these declarations and licenses means is a illuminated pathway toward collaboration and impactful communication. That said, I have a feeling that ‘open’ is always on the verge of becoming, rather than being the default. How to implement the Paris OER Declaration? Let’s ask teachers and students – what are your experiences?
If Open Education and Open Access are to become mainstream, they need to be part of timely discussions. For example, the hosts and organizers of events related to the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development can be asked what Open Access, Open Education resources are available.
Are you aware of the #YearOfOpen?
What are examples of good practice?
We can applaud and cheer on those whose work inspires in this #YearOfOpen.
