Individual Membership

Open Education Global (OEGlobal) is a global, member-based organization that focuses on community building, advancement, and support of open education initiatives around the world. We bring those engaged in open education together to learn from each other and partner on improving and advancing open education work globally.

Until 2022, OEGlobal only offered institutional memberships, but we are inviting a small group to pilot test our new individual membership option.

Individual Membership Fees

This new membership option will be offered at a rate of US$49/year, renewable on a yearly basis from date of approval. During this pilot test only, billing will not happen until July 2022 (and that will be the annual renewal date).

How to Apply

On the membership application form you will be asked to provide  your contact information, up to three selected project examples that demonstrate your role/interests in open education, and a statement of intent as an open educator/advocate. We will also ask for your username in our online community space, OEG Connect, (if you do not have an account, please create one before completing the application form).
