OpenCon community calls give a chance for you to learn what's happening in open research and education around the world, share what you're doing and find collaborators and opportunities.
Because this call falls during Open Education Week, for this community call we'll be hearing from guest speakers who are doing amazing Open Education work in the OpenCon community! Confirmed speakers include Alicia Lunz (TextbookbrokeAB), Beck Pitt (Open University), and Igor Lesko (Year of Open). We'll then work on a call to action - we'll share some of the exciting actions we can take during this week to promote Open Education. The call will be hosted by Brady Yano, Assistant Director Of Open Education for SPARC.
