About the Event

Explore Materials: Because we are planning a virtual event, all of our asynchronous materials will be released on April 21 for advance viewing. We’re also holding time from 9-11am on April 28 for participants to watch videos and explore resources.

Pre-Conference: On April 21, we’re hosting virtual watch parties on training topics from our rich archive of recorded presentations. Catch up on a webinar or conference session you missed the first time around while connecting with colleagues via chat and live Q&A.

Symposium: Starting at 11am on April 28, we have two time slots for synchronous “birds of a feather” sessions where participants will find lively discussions with colleagues on topics of shared interest. Any attendee can volunteer to host a topic via the registration form.

In the afternoon, all participants are welcome to join us for a 90-minute keynote, the OER Champion Awards, and an update on OER around the state – followed by a virtual game night.

We will host a Zoom “lobby” for informal conversation throughout the day.
