Abstract

Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) are almost taken-for-granted concepts in the broader context of open education, and specifically in the context of Open Educational Resources (OER) initiatives, projects and practices. GO-GN, a Global OER Graduate Network, set out to investigate and develop its DEI guidelines. This paper reports on the processes and findings of scoping DEI in the context of GO-GN. It also presents some of the project findings and provide the foundations of GO-GN guidelines for DEI. We then suggest some pointers for other OER practices and practitioners in embracing and foregrounding diversity, inclusion and equity.
