Examines the adoption of Open Educational Resources (OER) and Open Educational Practices (OEP) in secondary and tertiary education and teacher development in 21 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, South America and South and Southeast Asia.
“Here, and perhaps this is the volume’s greatest contribution, we have challenges laid out collectively, with detailed descriptions of initiatives and projects that showcase the activity around OER in regions which (if at all) are often presented in the aggregate, and usually in negative terms.” Tel Amiel, UNESCO Chair in Open Education
