Benefit of this resource and how to make the best use of it

The potential benefits of open education are often considered in three areas: expanding access to education, enhancing pedagogy, and advancing equity. With a long history, open education gained increased attention in 2020 as educators responded to the Covid-19 pandemic.

In a time when local and global inequalities have been exposed so dramatically, how can open educational resources and practices (OER and OEP) facilitate practical and equitable approaches to learning, teaching and assessment in our respective contexts?
