Theme & Topics

The theme of the 2024 Open Education Conference is “It’s About Time.” This phrase captures the essence of open education's dynamic evolution, which calls on us to learn from the past, seize the opportunities of the present, and build a future where education is truly open, inclusive and transformative for all. 

The conference accepts proposals addressing open education at any educational level (including university, college, primary, secondary, workforce, and informal learning). Proposals that address the following topics will receive special consideration: 

  • Student Centered Practice, Pedagogy, and Resources

  • The Workers of Open Education: Labor, Care, and Recognition
  • Open Education in Primary & Secondary Education (K-12) Education
  • Open Education in Workforce Training and Lifelong Learning
  • The Intersections of Open Education and Other Open Movements
