  28. 28. The second World OER Congress, 2017 • experts and national delegates from 111 countries adopted by acclamation the 2017 Ljubljana OER Action Plan • The accompanying Ministerial Statement1 called for a “dynamic coalition to expand and consolidate commitments to actions, strategies and legislation” in OER, with a “call on all educational stakeholders to implement the recommendations of the Ljubljana OER Action Plan 2017.”
  29. 29. • This Action Plan identifies concrete actions to mainstream OER to achieve SDG 4 on Quality Education: 1.b) Provide systematic and continuous capacity building (in-service and pre-service) on how to find, modify, create, maintain and share OER as an integral part of teacher and librarian training programmes at all levels of education. This would include capacity building on open licensing, copyright-related issues , as well as digital literacy including issues related to security and safety of OER in the development and use of OER content
  30. 30. Requirements for teachers for open professional collaboration in OER development • Digital competence • Openness for idea sharing, critics and learning • Benevolent attitude towards collaboration and innovations Reward and long term impact: - Digitally competent, autonomous teachers and learners, active contributors towards Open Learning

  32. 32. Must be considered - if sustainable development is addressed • Transferring innovations “per se” can cause a lot of negative consequences – sometimes crucial – for an organization • If teaachers are not competent to author and adapt curricula – who will do that in the near future? • Open sharing/ open professional collaboration can be a solution to prevent high risk of innovation uptake, and local – most trust worthy team of professionals to solve institutional dillemmas
