(via Stephanie Pierce, University of Arkansas)

The Open Education Southern Symposium (OESS) planning committee is excited to announce that registration and our call for program proposals for OESS 2021 is now open! This year, the Symposium will be held virtually, on the Whova platform. The event will take place from July 12 to 16 (Monday through Friday), with programming being broken up over the course of the week rather than holding our normal full day-and-a-half event.

The OESS2020’s conference theme is “Open Connections: Regional and Local Community Building for Equity and Sustainability” and will feature keynote Anita Walz, Assistant Director of Open Education and Scholarly Communication Librarian at Virginia Tech. This conference provides an excellent opportunity for professionals and advocates, both new and experienced, engaged in open education to gather, learn, and share.

The standard registration rate is $35. The student registration rate (limit of 25) is free. This rate is made possible through the support and assistance of the Global Campus, and it is available to only undergraduate and graduate students.

Registration is limited to 450 attendees, total. To register, please go here. The deadline for students is Wednesday, May 12. The last day for standard registration is Saturday, June 12. Direct any registration-related questions to the Planning Committee, at openedsouthsymposium@gmail.com.

Please watch for a separate message with the call for program proposals.
