Fostering Open Educational Practices - Presentation in St Petersburg at UNESCO IITE International Conference

My stay with the Open University in June 2010

The Moscow-based UNESCO Institute for Information Technologies in Education (IITE) has launched a project aimed at promoting OER movement within the Commonwealth of Independent States and the Baltic States. Basic components of the project, I am in charge of, are identifying opportunities and needs, exploring policy options, and capacity-building in the production and use of OER in CIS countries and Baltic States. To support the efficient design of the project, under the OLnet Expert Fellowship I focused my research on the major problems concerned with the production and use of OER: quality, the effectiveness of use and sustainability, as well as copyright and open content licensing issues (to the extent they are applicable within the copyright laws existing in CIS).
