Call for Conference Committee for OER21

As we head towards the end of 2020, we are already well into the planning and preparation stages for our OER Conference 2021. The OERxDomains Conference will be held online on 21-22 April 2021.

Organised by the Association for Learning Technology and partnership with Reclaim Hosting’s Domains Conference, this special edition of the much loved event is the 12th annual conference for Open Education research, practice and policy. We are proud to incorporate a special strand hosted by the Domains Conference - bringing our two communities closer together in 2021. 

Our call for Committee Members for the 2021 Conference is open, and we are looking for volunteers to help shape the Conference. This year, we are offering all volunteers an opportunity to sign up for what they are particularly interested in helping with in the run-up to, and during the Conference. The work of the Committee will start in January 2021 as the Call for Proposals is issued and continues up to the conference in April. Committee Members meet online every month but continue to work together to plan activities, promote the event and support participants between meetings. If you would like to get involved, please express your interest to join the Conference Committee by completing this form before 15 January 2021. 


Our Co-Chair Team

To make this special edition of the event happen, we have a team of Co-Chairs: Heading up the Domains strand are Lauren (Brumfield) Hanks and Jim Groom and leading on the OER side are Lou Mycroft, Louise Drumm and Joe Wilson. 

Our Conference Committee

We are keeping the invitation to join this conference committee open until 21 December. Sign up here to get involved. If you have previously signed up for the OER21 Conference Committee, you’ll already be on the list.
