Session Table Name: FIRENZE

Our group is from Canada, a sparsely populated nation and the second largest country in the world. Establishing and maintaining open education relationships and projects across Canada is a challenge. We're certain the same must be true for other large countries. So, during this World Cafe session we will brainstorm about how large jurisdictions might manage global, and intra-national, partnerships. (READ MORE about the history of and challenges regarding open education in Canada.)

Collaboration is key for the amplification of open education activities, especially as institutions share and collaborate in Open Educational Resource (OER) creation, Open Educational Practices (OEP) and Open Research. Establishing connections to enable open collaboration and stimulate growth can be challenging at best, and especially so in the context of large countries or across national and international borders.

During this 60-minute World Cafe session, we will explore how to sustain communities of practice that aim to openly share ideas, projects and educational content, within the context of large countries. We aim to engage participants in meaningful discussions about the impact collaboration can have on shaping the future of Open Education, in particular, by looking at how it can improve sharing of ideas, projects and educational content for a more socially just and equitable learning environment.

We will offer two separate tables with each dedicated to one of these two questions:

1. What are the biggest challenges to collaboration across boundaries (national and/or international) in terms of sharing (working in open contexts) open content, practices and data?

2. What specific opportunities do you see that can help grow and sustain collaborative open education initiatives around the world?

We call on our colleagues from around the world to share experiences from their countries as the group discusses strategies to mitigate challenges and barriers to cross-boundary collaboration and harness the opportunities created by the inherent diversity and richness of contributions from international partners.
