Kiribati teachers trained in OER

In Kiribati, access to quality education and teacher training is a persistent challenge. Open educational resources (OER) and digital learning offer unique solutions, as they provide costeffective, easily accessible content customisable to local contexts.  As part of COL’s support to the Ministry of Education and Kiribati Teachers College, over 100 teachers and teacher mentors participated in the two-day blended workshop on Innovative Teaching and Learning with OER. Participants were introduced to various concepts in OER and mobile learning.

Mr Uere Toorua, a local school principal who completed COL‘s Understanding OER course, said he found it “very informative… I encourage colleagues to take note of the information in the course, especially on copyright and open licensing.”
