Conference, in Park City, Utah, USA


The field of open education includes a wide diversity of participants. Open educational resources and services are provided by both individuals and institutions. Open education initiatives are created both at the grassroots and by governments. While some open education thought leaders style themselves as revolutionaries, others work as reformers. Some people want open education experiences that result in credentials, while others are interested in developing competencies. This dynamic body of work is the context in which participants in the field of open education situate their efforts.

The Open Education 2011 conference brings together this broad diversity of people to discuss the state of the art in open education and facilitate creative conversations across a wide variety of perspectives. Keynote speakers will address topics ranging from major government initiatives to efforts directed toward replacing traditional institutions.

The Open Education Conference has been described as “the annual reunion of the open education family.” Each year the conference serves as the world’s premiere venue for research and development related to open education, while simultaneously creating the most friendly and energetic atmosphere you’ll find at any academic conference.

October 25-27, 2011, the eighth annual conference comes home to Utah! The 2011 conference venue is The Canyons resort in Park City, Utah – venue for the 2002 Winter Olympics.
