Yey! just got my email from Marem Deepwell to join the Conference Committee for OER17. Here is a bit more about the conference:

“OER17 presents an opportunity for open practitioners, activists, educators and policy makers to come together as a community to reflect on The Politics of Open. What are our current key challenges and strengths  – locally, nationally, and  internationally?  What are our priorities – in terms of political governance, organisational and personal politics?  What are the changes that we want to effect together? The conference will be chaired by social and educational technologist and Wikimedia UK Trustee Josie Fraser, and Alek Tarkowski, Director of Centrum Cyfrowe, co-founder and coordinator of Creative Commons Poland”

Conference proposals are not open yet but this will happen soon – Nov/Dec this year.

One person I would like to see do a presentation is Lesley Gourlay based around her recent paper:

Gourlay, L. (2015). Open education as a ‘heterotopia of desire’. Learning, Media and Technology, 40 (3), 310-327.
