Policy consultation process

The project has been contributing to the promotion of learning and teaching of less used European languages by linking them to the global challenges of Open Education. This has been done by awareness raising and capacity building activities (including exchange of good practice, training, expert consultations, discussions and dissemination activities) for the two main target groups, policy makers and educators in less used languages in Europe.


Conference workshops

The final event of the LangOER’s project ‘Open Education: Promoting Diversity for European Languages’conference took place on 26-27 September, in Brussels. The event was co-organised by the LangOER project (supported by the Lifelong Learning Programme) with the Educational Repositories Network – EdReNe.


Following the opening speeches, the LangOER project draft policy recommendations 'Enabling Cultural and Linguistic Diversity in Europe through OER' were presented, inaugurating two days of workshops and open discussions also focusing on selecting and refining the recommendations. The conference concluded with a call for future actions on OER and suggested actions for the improvement of the recommendations draft.
