Feedback form is now closed.
Open Education is somewhat “mythic" for many institutions, and our collaborative network has been helping to demystify challenges related to open education for a decade. As one of our central leaders at CCCOER points out, when your unicorn breaks a leg, you to need to grow some wings and become a pegasus. The CCCOER Community of Practice is a collaboration of institutions and OE Practitioners who support one another in learning about, planning for, and sustaining open education adoption to scale. Our goals are to inspire new leaders in open education while nurturing our longer-term members in their efforts to bring open education to the next level at their institutions. One major theme in our network is addressing challenges related to large-scale adoption of open education. During this panel new and long-term leaders in our organization will demonstrate how we work together to build capacity in addressing challenges to success in scaling open education projects.

Bring a favorite challenge to this session and see how the community can help you look at different ways to approach and successfully resolve.
