Open Seminar and Exhibition
The goal of the 2012 World OER Congress is to invite Governments to view and discuss the merits of open educational resources and to adopt a Declaration that calls on Governments to support the sustainable development and dynamic use of OERs.
To provide an opportunity to civil society organizations, academia, and individual experts to present on their Open Educational Resources initiatives, UNESCO is organizing a parallel Open Seminar & Exhibition from 21 to 22 June 2012 in UNESCO Headquarters, Paris, France.
The Open Seminar & Exhibition is organized in full partnership with OER Africa, a SAIDE initiative.
Presenters will be able to apply for a half-hour or 1 hour speaking slot and will also be able to put up posters. A monitor will be continuously running all presentations.
