Join us in exploring the relationship between OER and Indigenous Languages, Cultures and Ways of Knowing.
4 years has passed since the UNESCO OER Recommendation was adopted, and we are already 2 years into the International Decade of Indigenous Languages (IDIL).
What can we learn from the two, and what can we expect moving forward?

Panelists
Margreta Tveisme, Norwegian Digital Learning Arena (NDLA) Yu Hsin Wang and Dai Yu Hong from Taiwan
Dr Johanna Funk, Charles Darwin University, Australia
Gino Fransman, Nelson Mandela University, South Africa

This panel will address the needs of indigenous communities as we continue to work together in breaking down the barriers to education, knowledge and skills. What does opening up education with OER mean for the preservation, promotion and sharing of indigenous languages, cultures and knowledge systems? What can governments, institutions, and individuals do?

The Panelists will share their experiences and knowledge with the conference delegates, exploring the challenges, and opportunities related to OER and Indigenous Languages, Cultures and Ways of Knowing.

The lessons learned and outputs from this panel discussion will contribute to future events and discussions.

The panel will be introduced by ICDE.
