Brace yourselves for OEGlobal 2022!

After two years of not seeing each other in person, the first Open Education Global In-person Congress takes place from May 23!

Over 250 Open Education advocates have registered to be #InNantes. If you can get to Nantes, but have not yet registered, there is still time! Look below to see what you can expect from the In-person Program.
Registration closes on May 16. Register here.

We realize that many of you will not be able to make it to France! We have developed the AND Conference program to give those of you #NotInNantes a way to experience #OEGlobal on your terms. From May 23-25 and beyond, the OEGlobal 2022 AND Conference will enhance the in-person congress with an online aspect to the program.

Both the “In-Person” and “AND Conference” aspects of OEGlobal 2022 continue the 2021 online conference theme of furthering the implementation of the
UNESCO Recommendation on OER.

(Please note: If you have already registered to attend the OEGlobal 2022 In-person Congress, this email is not meant for you. The information for registered delegates is available here.)

A truly multilingual event, there are 3 sessions in Arabic, 6 sessions in Spanish, 21 sessions in French and 53 sessions in English. The program has been structured into:
  • 7 Lightning Talks
  • 18 Learning Labs

The Thematic Sessions cover a range of relevant topics, including Frontier Technologies, the different “Opens”, Libraries and librarians, Primary to Secondary application, the Role of Students, and Pathways to Opening Up Education.

A program of this complexity would not be possible without the help of the amazing Program Chairs and the
Review Committee. Thank you to all!

Get OEG Connected with the AND Conference

Recognizing that many open education heroes are not able to travel to Nantes, the OEGlobal22 team has organised participation and engagement opportunities for those “Not in Nantes” that are also of value for those “In Nantes.”

The OEGlobal22 AND Conference (based on the unconference concept) is an enhanced aspect of the In-Nantes Program. It is not intended as a separate element. It is intended to provide participation by all. It will be shaped by those who show up and participate.

OEG Connect is a hub discussion and resource sharing from the In-Nantes Sessions, the online Unconference Sessions, and Interaction activities that connect those In-Nantes with NotInNantes participants.
