The goal: global, accessible and egalitarian resources

The UOC, as a diverse, inclusive university, works to ensure its learning resources provide a better reflection of this commitment. The new website section showcases a number of projects and initiatives: 

  • The UOC is working to ensure its courses' contents are more diverse and global and that everyone feels represented. The resources need to show society's diversity and make it more visible, and wherever possible, they must include examples and viewpoints of other cultural and social contexts from around the world. 
  • The UOC's Equality Plan 2020-2024 has the mission of ensuring that all courses have resources and contents that are free of gender bias and highlight the contribution of leading women. To this end, different actions are being carried out, with the participation of the Equality Unit and the UOC Library.
  • The UOC’s mission is to facilitate lifelong education for all. The resources created at the UOC are provided in different formats to foster their use by students with disabilities. At the same time, we are working on the resources' accessibility, to provide new solutions meeting the needs of all our students.
