UNESCO’s Open Access (OA) Curriculum

UNESCO’s Open Access (OA) Curriculum
http://cssp-jnu.blogspot.in/2015/03/unescos-open-access-oa-curriculum-is.html

“Building inclusive Knowledge Societies through information and communication” is one of the key objectives for UNESCO’s Medium-Term Strategy. By adopting this objective, UNESCO Member States have recognized that knowledge plays a key role in economic growth, social development, cultural enrichment and democratic empowerment. This decision of the Members States has influenced UNESCO’s Open Access program, through which the organization received a unique mandate to work on OA policy issues; bridge knowledge pools on OA across the world and build capacities to better understand Open Access. These curricula will soon be converted into self-directed e-learning tools, which will enable users to self-assess their knowledge on Open Access and take a learning pace that is initiated and directed by the learners themselves. UNESCO also aims to strengthen this initiative by translating the OA curricula into several languages that will increase their reach and impact. The complete set of five OA modules for researchers and four OA modules for library schools is now available online and can be downloaded from this site.
