Remember 1975? No? Let me see what I can do …
Yes, 1975 was the last time The Netherlands won the Eurovision song contest –cringe, crash, scream! A year later the festival took place in The Hague. In 2018 though, it is not a music event our Dutch friends are hosting but the most important gathering of open education enthusiasts and experts in the world: the Open Education Global Conference. And so it is that we are about to jump on board the first #OEGlobal18 train and take a ride to Delft. The 7th GO-GN seminar will take place on April 21st and 22nd, ahead of the main conference. Fourteen GO-GN PhD researchers and alumni have been funded to participate in two hectic and hopefully rewarding days of presentations, discussions and reflections on doctorate life and open education. We share with you all the seminar schedule and invite you to come along to Sunday evening’s informal reunion of GO-GN family and friends.
Also, check out the depth and breadth of GO-GN research being presented at OEGlobal18. I’ve gone through the conference program and think I have managed to find everyone…
