The UNESCO OER Recommendation and Open Knowledge: An Overview for African Librarians
Libraries are frequently overlooked in discussions about open education and OER, as is Africa more generally. Librarians cannot play an active role if they do not fully understand the significance of open licensing to their work. This resource titled "The UNESCO OER Recommendation and Open Knowledge: An Overview for African Librarians" developed by AfLIA, in collaboration with Neil Butcher and Associates tries to explain the pertinence of open licensing, the OER Recommendation and provides practical applications of the Recommendation within the context of African libraries.
This resource is a comic strip that humorously yet informatively explains the concept of open licensing. The strip follows a group of adult librarians who are attending a continuing education course on open licensing. The instructor uses a variety of teaching methods, including humor, to help the librarians understand the concept. The strip breaks down open licensing into easy-to-understand terms, making it accessible to librarians of all levels of experience. The strip also provides practical advice on how librarians can use open licensing to benefit their users and their communities.
