Thank you to our contributors: Sadik Shahadu, Subha Dasmollick, Annapurna Madhuri, Paul Stacey, Mahesh Koltame, Seema Sharma and Ebba Ossiannilsson.

Open education offers a opportunity for international collaborations and collective problem-solving in a world demanding more and more cooperation for solving global challenges. Isolationist approaches to education, particularly the approach of the American education system, will put the learners at a disadvantage when they enter the now globally competitive job market. Thus, open education can be leveraged both in application and practice, to garner more global perspectives for students, teachers, and societies. Open education can be used as both a tool and strategy for fostering a more comprehensive educational system. In this video we will both highlight what Open Education looks like in different countries, and hear about how peers have leveraged such experiences in their current work.

This session will highlight Open Education in various educational contexts, including from the perspectives of global peers from around the world. The facilitators will provide the contributors with minimal prompts and will consolidate their answers. The video will consist of shorts snippets from our colleagues addressing two prompts.

No, we will not be asking national governments to answer these questions; rather, we'd like to hear from peers to understand the personal experiences and popular opinions and perspectives on Open Education around the world.

Learning Outcomes: As a result of "attending" the session, people will:
1) understand more about what Open Education looks like in other countries, according to those contributing to the video.
2) learn about existing opportunities for international involvement in open education.
3) be able to articulate the current state of Open Education as a global movement and strategy for modernizing the educational systems in various contexts.
