Executive Committee

The Executive Committee will meet regularly to review opportunities, challenges, direction and progress on goals.  This committee will serve as the primary link between the operational and strategic aspects of the organization. While the Executive Committee can function to support the Executive Director and/or the President, its primary purpose is to serve the ongoing needs of the organization, with discussions focused on these issues.

Members:

Board President, Vice President and Executive Director

Membership and network committee

OEC has recently moved to a single membership. This gives an opportunity for staff to update ways we work with members. This also gives an opportunity for the board to look at how it reports to, represents and works with members, and to consider strategic membership building in light of our mission and activities. OEC has been successful in reaching out to organizations working in other areas of openness under the Year of Open umbrella. As we strive to make open a normal practice in education, we will need to strengthen these partnerships and consider how our networks of members, partners and supporters can best work together towards our ultimate goals.

Responsibilities:

  • Assess and recommend how we can increase member participation and satisfaction, given that OEC has a membership structure and an activist agenda.
  • Examine board visibility and relationship to members and how this could be enhanced
  • Recommend ways we can leverage our global networks to help meet our goals
  • Evaluate and recommend new partnerships to increase our impact and effectiveness

Vision and Mission committee

The Open Education Consortium will celebrate 10 years in 2018. In preparation for celebration of this milestone, we need to revisit our vision and mission to ensure that we have a bold, unifying vision for the next 10 years.

Responsibilities:

  • Landscape scan of opportunities, challenges and trends in global education and assessment of how open education fits or addresses these
  • Considering input from all board members and building on OEC strengths, articulate OEC’s role in helping to shape the future of education
  • Outreach to members, partners, thought leaders for input and feedback
  • Refinement of vision and mission statements
  • Determine broad strategic areas for OEC’s next decade in preparation for new strategic plan

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
