Looking at an organization’s historical footprint can often indicate future trends. Are you strategic when you develop a vision or are you reactive? In this session, I will share how the Open Education Consortium (OEC) used insights resulting from our historical perspective, research from the growth, and expansion of the OEC to strategize, not only to share the organization for the future but potentially for open education.

Evolution of OEG throughout the years
In 2018, OEC celebrated its 10th anniversary. During the milestone year, OEC spent time looking at the 10 years as it related to growth, membership, and vision. For example, in 2008, the primary focus was on open courses, hence the name OpenCourseWare Consortium. In 2018, not only has the focus totally changed, the name changed to Open Education Consortium. The focus has not only expanded to include many other forms of open education such as open textbooks, open pedagogy, open access, and open source software, etc.; the focus has also shifted to less about open courses to more about collaboration.

Results and participation
During OEC’s anniversary year, an opinion survey gathered feedback on three areas that most affected open education during the past 10 years: 1 – the greatest trends; 2 – significant events; and 3 - inspirational influencers that shaped the understanding of open education in the past 10 years.

Invitation to participate
The historical footprint, the opinion survey, and a member needs-assessment were collectively used to create a list of ten specific items that we believe will affect the future of open education and OEC. I will share a visual creating an organizational roadmap leading to the top 10 plans for the future and offer an invitation to participate.
