ICDE Focused on OER

ICDE Will Launch the New OER Advocacy Committee

Toronto (CA), October 2017 - The International Council for Open and Distance Education (ICDE) Executive Committee has voted to establish an OER advocacy committee. The idea was to reinforce advocacy and increase recognition, policy support, uptake, and use and reuse of OER; to promote collaboration within and attention to the field; and to provide supportive advocacy guidance to ICDE members and stakeholders. During the 27th ICDE World Conference in Toronto, Canada, the OER Advocacy Committee will be officially launched.
