About the MI OER Summit (2020 information, tentative for 2021)

“Building Bridges to Open Up Education” is this year’s theme and call to action. Now on our 4th year of convening open education advocates and practitioners, the need to collectively capitalize on our success, collaboration, and partnerships is as vital as ever. Together, let’s reimagine how open education and OER can be the catalyst towards a more equitable, accessible, and learner-centered future.

Join our conversation at #MIOERSummit.
