Monday Plenary: What Does Open Education Mean to You?

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The first plenary session of the conference will focus on the meaning of open education through the practice of storytelling. This interactive experience will focus on the people who drive the open education movement.

The session will begin with an interactive polling exercise to explore who is in the room, what their education priorities are, and what open education means to them. Then, the session will introduce an interactive storytelling exercise, where participants will have a chance to break out into small groups to share their own personal story—starting at the very beginning, and explaining the journey to the shared experience of the conference.

For those who prefer not to break out, a panel of open education advocates and practitioners will share their stories in the main room (recorded so those who join breakouts don't miss out!) The practice of story circles is adapted from OpenCon, and if you're on the fence, we encourage you to read more about it.

This year's Open Education Conference is all about community, and this session will offer a chance to get to know people in a way we rarely have the opportunity to do! Join us for an interactive journey.
