BRIDGE’s commitment to open licensing

BRIDGE was founded on the realisation that a critical part of the problem in education in South Africa is that stakeholders do not sufficiently share, adopt and implement what works. The idea of collaboration is at the foundation of BRIDGE’s interventions. These interventions aim at maximising collective effort and decreasing duplication and competition in key focus areas in education. BRIDGE has thus always positioned itself as an advocate for open information sharing and transparency by committing to disseminating working practice and facilitating collaboration. We believe in the value of Open Educational Resources (OERs) and ensure that all our knowledge products are freely accessible, redistributed, amended and built on. By disseminating Knowledge Products as widely as possible, BRIDGE hopes to make its work and the work of its Communities of Practice more accessible. Visit the BRIDGE Knowledge Hub for a full list of Knowledge Products.

BRIDGE is proud to join other organisations in building a platform of Knowledge Products that facilitate open sharing to improve education in South Africa and worldwide.
