OEGlobal 2022 in Review

OEGlobal 2022 took place a month ago. There was so much to digest and process from the conference, that it feels both like just yesterday and last year all at once!

First, we want to thank those of you who could be there for being there, making OEGlobal 2022 the success it was. We’d also like to thank the global open education community for their unwavering support and interaction through the AND Conference component of the conference. As with all things in Open, it is the community and those who participate that make it as successful as it can be!

Of course, it was also possible due to a great co-hosting team from Nantes Université. Thank you, Colin, Solenn, and Melanie for all the excellent logistics and support.
