Read Read “OER19: tears, laughter and hope” by clareEdTechBlogclareEdTechBlog (My Educational Technology Labyrinth – Clare Thomson)

OER was the one conference over the years that was always on my ‘must go’ list but I never felt that I had a legitimate reason. I wasn’t formally involved in open education, either for research or teaching and learning. Yet, by default, I am an open practitioner, I instinctively share and ensure that as much as possible of what I do within a closed professional setting, is published and licensed with CC BY. This is entirely my choice, one taken from a position of ‘better to ask for forgiveness than permission’. Colleagues have commented on it as something that is quirky and very Clare. Attending a conference with an entire programme dedicated to open was therefore a delight and hearing that others have the same experiences and thoughts even better.

The days are ticking by and it is nearly time for OER19! We are immensely excited as we prepare to welcome you to the 10th annual OER Conference — whether you are travelling to Galway or participating virtually.

The theme for OER19 is ‘Recentering Open: Critical and Global Perspectives’. It has been our hope that this theme will invite not only critical and global perspectives, but also multiple interpretations — of open iself, of the concept of recentering, of the meaning of critical, and indeed of the point-of-view of many of the questions ‘we’ ask about open.

If only virtually I’m afraid Gabi! Thankfully there are great remote participation options https://oer19.oerconf.org/participate/remote-participation/

Congrats to you & all the organising committee on building a fantastic #OER19 conference. The very best of luck with it all  🔓

Meredith, Lauren, and I are gearing up for the OER19 conference in Galway in a couple of weeks, a trip we are all looking very much forward to. In fact, I have a post due quite soon for the OER19 blog, which will hopefully explain why Reclaim feels such a strong sense of kinship with the folks that run the OER conference.* Anyway, part of what we will be doing this year, unlike last, is actually sponsoring the conference as Reclaim Hosting as opposed to one of out satellite outfits like Reclaim Video or Reclaim Arcade. This is something I did not think we would ever do, but again that is fodder for the other posts I still need to write … dammit!
