The Unesco recommendations on open educational resources (OER) where adopted by the UN general conference in 2019 and have since been ratified by several governments, including the government of Sweden.
Mötesplats OER (”OER forum”) is a collaboration between wikimedia Sweden (WMSE) and representatives from various swedish universities and cultural heritage institutions. The aim of this network is to promote the adoption of OER in Sweden. We gather various actors that share an interest in OER: Educators, policy makers, stewards of information resources and infrastructure, advocates for open and accessible learning.
