The UNESCO OER Programme through the Apia Office is supporting a meeting being organized by the OER Foundation (based in Dunedin, NZ) to essentially start the process of creating an OER University.
The basic idea is that a student can learn using OER materials and subject their learning to an official accreditation agency for valedation.
The meeting will be held on Feb 23 (NZ time). It is open to anybody to attend physically or virtually (UNESCO is supporting the live streaming with integrated web-conference and twitter support).

This meeting is directly linked to an Oxford-style debate on March 7th and several OER and OPAL activities during the year leading to the launch of the OER Platform at the General Conference.
We hope you will join the meeting and contribute your European/global perspective
