#OpenEd21 is almost here! Next week is the Open Education Conference and we’re excited to see so many GO-GN’ers speaking at the conference. To help you keep track of all the fantastic sessions across the week we’ve brought together all our member and alumni presentations into one handy blog post!

We’re also thrilled to be dedicating most of our own GO-GN session to showcase member and alumni work in an exciting series of 5 minute lightening talks. Join us at 11.00EDT on Wednesday 20 October for The Global OER Graduate Network (GO-GN): Research Showcase, Collaboration & Consultation feat. Marjon Bass, Verena Roberts, Cynthia Orozco, Kathy Essmiller, Jess O’Reilly and Sarah Hutton. Don’t miss it!

Also keep a look out for our very own Rob Farrow who’ll be presenting earlier that day at 9.30EDT on Building the 20th Century OER Ecosystem.

And of course, make sure you catch our fabulous members and alumni presenting across the conference:
