My Reflection

The dynamics of today's knowledge and technology driven information society demand continuing e-skills development of all stakeholders in the knowledge paradigm. Open Education Resources provide an indispensable condition for national reforms to adopt and implement development programmes, concepts and techniques; and a way to network and exchange knowledge and best practices. OER serve as vital instruments of regular updating of knowledge and an effective way to revitalise professional habits thereby enabling individuals to speedily adapt to new dispensations. This community should have a vision to develop platforms that address the challenges presented by the knowledge society particularly as they relate to access and utilisation of Open Access Research Evidence products thereby gaining a competitive edge in our technology-driven knowledge economy.
