Seeing The Forest And The Trees - understanding the global open education landscape and the potential for collaboration

Open education is developing everywhere around the world. However, the big picture view of what is happening around the world is limited. The community tends not to have a shared common understanding of the global open education landscape. As the saying goes “We can’t see the forest for the trees.” Open education leaders and practitioners can see the “trees” of their own initiative or that of their region or country but not the “forest” of the global open education landscape.

Drawing on the Open Education Consortiums (OEC) unique position as a global open education member organization advocating for and supporting open education around the world, this session will map out OEC’s view of the global open education landscape. High level summaries of open education across regions of the world (Asia, Africa, North America, Oceania, Europe, etc.) will be provided. The relative importance and adoption of various forms of open education (OER, Open Access, Open Science, etc.) will be described along with specific areas of focus. Potential for collaboration across regions and around the world to increase and improve open education adoption, implementation and impact will be highlighted.
