Short Online Courses: Making a Global Impact

The Open Education Global 2021 (OEGlobal) conference kicks off on Monday 27 September! The 5-day online event celebrates all things open education and, this year, my proposal was accepted to present as part of their video sessions, where attendees can view presentations, share resources, and discuss ideas.

Throughout the week, there are also webinars, interactive activities and social activities from speakers around the world, which have been developed to show the connection of open education to the UNESCO OER Recommendation.

The conference programme is designed for a multilingual and multicultural audience, and sessions will be delivered in the six official United Nations languages – Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish.

My session focuses on our short online course portfolio, and how we’re making a positive impact on a global scale. I talk about the aims and achievements of the Online Course Production Service and OER Service, and showcase some of our courses and the fantastic open materials we are creating.

I also outline how the portfolio supports the 17 Sustainable Development Goals set out by the United Nations, which are:

a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and improve the lives and prospects of everyone, everywhere.
