A4: UNESCO ICT Competency Framework for Teachers / OER Project




This capacity building initiative will demonstrate to those involved with teacher/ instructor education how to access ICT Competency Framework for Teachers (ICT CFT) and use it to shape training initiatives using Open Educational Resources.

It will also provide an overview of the 2019 UNESCO Recommendation on OER and how it can be applied to support teacher/ Instructor Training.

The workshop will identify free and quality units of study aligned to the ICT CFT competencies. These free to use, and modify, open educational resources (OER) resident in the UNESCO ICT CFT Hub on OER Commons, can be adapted to suit new contexts and learners. The training will also introduce you to members of the UNESCO ICT Competency Framework for Teachers (ICT-CFT) OER Network practitioners/expert group.
