OERcamp.global Starts Next Week

Jennifer Miller and I are presenting at this event on the Open Science Syllabus. This just in from #OERcampglobal…

Dear Everyone interested in Open Education! 

It’s only a few days until #OERcampglobal (9–11 Dec)! We’re going to gather for 48 hours of learning and sharing about Open Education and OER. A truly global programme, around the clock, from all over the world. (Of course, no one is expected to participate for the full 48 hours. You can also simply pick 1 or 2 sessions that you are interested in.) 

The schedule already includes almost 100 sessions, with workshops, exchange rounds and talks from India to Chile, Namibia to California, Austria to Indonesia. All online, of course, via Zoom.

Here’s why you should attend:

  1. Learn about projects and ideas on open education and OER in your field!
  2. Network with people from around the world!
  3. Find materials and resources that you can adapt for your work!
  4. It’s gonna be fun!

Learn more at https://oercamp.global and sign up in 2 minutes! Registration is free and you only need to register once for the entire event, no matter if you want to attend 1 or 48 sessions.

We look forward to seeing you!
Jöran, Kristin, Alica and the entire #OERcamp team
