To establish a global understanding of national OER development, COL will be conducting a survey of governments and stakeholders.
The government survey will be sent to Ministries responsible for education in all UNESCO and Commonwealth of Learning Member States. The questionnaire will also be made available to COL Focal Points and to National Delegations in UNESCO.
The status of the government survey is available here.
For other stakeholders, please click on the button to the right to respond to the questionnaire. The survey will open in a new window.
The background paper for the Regional Consultations contains details that will be useful in completing the survey.
The responses from these surveys will be part of a consolidated global report on the status of OER to be made available at the 2nd World OER Congress in September 2017.
The expected outcomes of this study are to:
● identify the current status of implementation of the recommendations made at the World OER Congress (2012) among key stakeholders, namely, governments, policy makers, the OER community and the wider education community;
● initiate discussions amongst the key stakeholders regarding the strategies to deal with the identified challenges to mainstreaming OER;
● build awareness among key stakeholders about the objectives of the 2nd World OER Congress; and,
● develop strategies that will support stakeholders to move from commitment to action.
