What am I looking forward to for OpenLearning18? Connections and conversations! These OpenLearning experiences are designed for network expansion, so participants can connect with each other and see their networks expand (Twitter followers, synched blogs and such). The connections provide opportunities to engage in critical conversations about open education: open in what way, open for whom, what are the benefits, what are the challenges, what are the implications, etc. These conversations can lead to more thoughtful engagement with and implementation of open educational resources (and open learning practices). I am looking forward to continuing to facilitate and participate in those exchanges!
