Mainstreaming OER in Support of Achieving SDG4

  1. 1. SDG4 + OER: Working Together to Mainstream Open Education Dr. Cable Green Director of Open Education Creative Commons cable@creativecommons.org @cgreen
  2. 2. Mainstream OER in support of achieving SDG4 (& other SDGs)
  3. 3. Why connect OER to SDGs?
  4. 4. OER can be the education resources to teach the public about and are continuously updated by working on SDGs. Connects education to solving SDGs: Forms a new, positive connection between governments and their public education systems.
  5. 5. Global challenges / SDGs are constantly changing. OER can be updated in real time.
  6. 6. In US higher education alone, David Wiley* estimates students spend 40 million hours on “disposable assignments” annually. What are the numbers in other nations? This time / effort could be re-tasked to build, revise, remix, and curate OER to work on / solve SDGs. * http://opencontent.org/blog/archives/3941
  7. 7. Open pedagogy / praxis: Shift to students and teachers / faculty building, revising and creating community around OER. Students can contribute to improving curriculum, work on complex and authentic problems (e.g., SDGs), and have their work be used in their fields.
  8. 8. Students want their work to make a difference in the world. Since this work is more meaningful and the stakes are higher (e.g., climate action, zero hunger, gender equality, no poverty), students are motivated to work smarter, learn more deeply, have an opportunity to contribute to society – by producing, revising, and sharing OER about SDGs - while they earn their degree.
