Conference in Cambridge, MA, USA



Celebrate 10 years of OpenCourseWare by joining us for the OpenCourseWare Consortium Global 2011 Meeting in Cambridge, MA May 4-6. Our three host universities—University of Massachusetts Boston, Tufts University, and MIT—are working with the OCW Consortium to make the 10-year celebration an event to remember.

The Conference is built around three tracks:

Impact of OCW: The number and use of OpenCourseWare courses continues to grow. Sessions in this theme focus on how OCWs are being used and what we are learning from analytics and evaluation about their use. We also examine innovative forms of OCW use and the integration of OCWs with the existing education system.

Producing OCW: We reflect on the challenges and solutions developed over the last decade of producing OpenCourseWares. Sessions in this theme examine what we have learned from a decade of publication of OCW courses and from the design of the courses. We examine how we might do differently and how we might improve the OCW experience.

Next Generation "Open" Learning: This conference is a celebration of our momentum: all are invited to join discussions about shaping the future of OpenCourseWare. Sessions in this theme examine OCW as part of the open educational resources movement, and look forward at the next generation of OpenCourseWare.
