OER17 registration open

We are pleased to announce that registration for the OER17 conference is now open.

Attending OER17 presents a fantastic opportunity for anyone with an interest in open educational practice, expert or novice, to share, learn and debate ‘The Politics of Open’ and consider what needs to be done to overcome barriers and move open education forwards.

Co-Chaired by Josie Fraser, social and educational technologist and Alek Tarkowski, Director of Centrum Cyfrowe, Poland, this conference promises to be an exciting exploration of several key themes all related to the politics behind the open education movement.

Full details of our co-chairs, conference themes and keynote speakers can be found on the OER17 website along with details of our ethical venue Resource for London. The programme schedule will be made available as soon as possible; it will consist of two action-packed days with a choice of strands and sessions as well as keynotes from Maha Bali, Lucy Crompton-Reid and Diana Arce.

The conference price represents excellent value for money but to secure the best price book early. Our early bird rate is available until 31 January. Visit our registration page to find out more and book your place.

If you are able to join us for both conference days you are automatically invited to join us for our social evening event on 5 April. This year we are offering something a little different to the usual gala dinner. More details will be announced shortly but we are aiming for a highly social, relaxed and fun evening where you can be with fellow delegates, participate in a number of activities or just sit and chat as you choose.
