Call for Proposals: Open Texas 2022 (Online Sept. 21-23)–Deadline Wed., June 1

(via Ashley Morrison, University of Texas at Austin)

You are invited to share your work, perspectives, and ideas at Open Texas 2022, being held virtually on September 21-23 (Wednesday-Friday). Visit the Open Texas 2022 website to learn about this year’s committees and conference theme.

This year’s theme, “The Labor of Open Education”, invites participants to reflect on the work, creativity, art, and science of open education 20 years since UNESCO adopted the term “open educational resources” in 2002. With its origins in social justice and motivation to achieve equity in access, participation, and attainment for students and practitioners, open education has required significant work and commitment.

In 2022, as higher education has become more comfortable with the digital universe and the pandemic becomes endemic, it is time to examine the labor of open education. This year’s conference will explore the people and passion behind the success of OER over the last two decades.

The call for proposals is now open. Proposals must be submitted via Cvent and are due on Wednesday, June 1. If you need help getting started, feel free to use our Proposal Submission Preparation document.

If you have questions or suggestions about the Open Texas call for proposals, please e-mail open.ed.texas@gmail.com.
