OER18: Open to All

April 2018

OER18 turns the focus on one of the often-cited benefits of 'open' – the promise of inclusivity. How do the resources, methods and projects that make up open education support making education available to all? As a movement over 15 years old, has open education made an impact – on learners, on society and on education? What can we do to to support learning in the open – and how can we use open to support learning? The conference will be chaired by academic and open education researcher Vivien Rolfe, alongside policy wonk and project manager David Kernohan.  More about the co-chairs.
