Conference Committee

The Open Education Global conference is the most internationally diverse conference focused on open education. The diversity and quality of conference presentations are key strengths of the conference. As one of our major activities of the year, we need increased board involvement to increase impact, insure strong attendance and broaden support, as well as consideration of future strategic roles for the conference.

Responsibilities:

  • Identification, invitation and preparation of keynote speakers
  • Identify opportunities to amplify the conference (other events to link to, leveraging the conference to amplify open agendas locally or regionally, ways to engage new audiences, etc)
  • Outreach to students, faculty, administrators, other open organizations
  • Liaise with conference planning committee for conference content
  • Recommend ancillary events, meetings and opportunities for board members at the conference
  • Cultivate additional conference sponsors and partners
  • Strategic location cultivation and planning for future conferences
