The adoption and growth of open education around the world is OE Global’s primary mission. There are many ways to build communities.
On a global level, OEG Connect provides a safe space to discuss, ask and share ideas and experiences. OEG Voices have been developed to inspire the global community by learning from those who are working deep within it.
OEG Connect has been created as a space for the global open education community to chat, share, discuss and build their knowledge around the many subjects that relate to Open Education.
While there is much in common about open education globally there are also regional differences. Language, culture, education systems, and priorities differ. The forms of open education and the ways it is implemented vary. Initial adoptions are often very local and as use matures synergies and opportunities for collaboration and partnership often start out within a specific region broadening to include others gradually.
In recognition of this, OE Global operates regional nodes that provide a local forum for supporting open education in a specific region. Currently OE Global has two regional nodes.
To find out more and participate in these regional nodes visit:
The LATAM Regional node is an OE Global regional node focused on supporting open education across Latin America. Additional regional nodes are planned and built out in response to and in consultation with members in different regions of the world.
The Community College Consortium for Open Educational Resources (CCCOER) is an OE Global regional node primarily focused on supporting open education adoption and use by community colleges across the USA.
