Special Collection

Open Education in Latin America

Collection launched: 29 Nov 2018

In April 2017 representatives from 18 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean gathered in São Paulo to discuss the recommendations that would be put forward to the 2nd World OER Congress in relation to mainstreaming OER to achieve the 2030 Sustainable Development Goal on Quality Education. During the discussions that preceded these recommendations, it was noted that countries in Latin America are still in the early stages of adopting OER. This delayed uptake was firstly attributed to the lack of visibility of existing open education initiatives in the region. This Special Collection is an attempt to redress this issue.

Guest Editors: Tel Amiel, Beatriz de los Arcos, Ismar Frango and Virginia Rodés.
