location:McMurtry Auditorium, Duncan Hall

Join us for the 2012 Connexions Conference, which brings together leading policy, academic, and technology experts to discuss the future of Open Education Resources (OER) and the technologies that are making this future a possibility.

Over the past year, Connexions has been busy laying the foundation to extend its reach, usability and relevance for a broader spectrum of the education community. Connexions has expanded its content base to more effectively engage mainstream educational institutions, and Connexions has formed partnerships to create a more comprehensive and sustainable OER ecosystem. This foundation will allow Connexions to continue to make a significant impact by providing greater access to quality educational materials for the next decade and beyond.

The 4th Annual Connexions Conference promises to be highly interactive and engaging. The talks on the agenda will explore emerging sustainability models, evaluate strategies for greater collaboration and coordination within the OER community, and introduce new ideas on how to cross the innovation chasm into the mainstream.
