Open Educational Resources
An online clinic on open educational resources (OER) and national policy on 27 September, 2021, was facilitated by Neil Butcher & Associates, in partnership with the EdTech Hub, UNESCO, the mEducation Alliance, and the Education Commission.
The workshop sought to cover the following issues:
UNIMA finds itself in a situation where very few students have access to the approved textbooks and readings, nullifying the prescribed book lists. Resources in the reserve section of the college libraries are in great demand, and popular books undergo rebinding many times in their life cycle.
It is against this background that UNIMA embarked on a strategy to exploit Open Education Resources (OER).
