LangOER is taking off!
The LangOER project has officially started at our kick-off meeting in Leeuwarden on 27/28 January. It was a pleasure to meet all the partners and to get to know each other a bit better. We had fruitful discussions and partners shared their enthusiasm about the project.
How can less used languages, including Regional and Minority languages, benefit from Open Educational Practices (OEP)? How can Open Educational Resources (OER) be shaped to foster linguistic and cultural diversity in Europe? We are all looking forward to learning more about those topics, addressing the needs of educators, overcoming the barriers to OER uptake, and, most of all, collaborating all together over the next three years.
