Social Programme

As part of our programme for OER22 we invite you to join in with the social activities that we have planned.

Tuesday, 26 April – Conference welcome and orientation session

Open TextbooksAt 09:00 BST on 26 April we will welcome you online at OER22 and help you find your way around. Head over to the Introductions Channel in our social space on Discord.

This is a great way to meet delegates from different institutions or sectors and build your own networks.

If you are looking for help about accessing the social space and connecting with others, our help page is a great place to start. Once you are in Discord, you can head over to the virtual helpdesk with any questions you may have.

Details of how to join our social spaces and access the interactive programme are sent to you the week before the conference with your joining instructions.

Wednesday, 27 April – Hallways chat

In our social space on Discord we have set up a dedicated hallway chat channel, and this is a great place for informal conversations in and around the conference.

You can also meet some of the folk from the Conference Committee who helped shape the conference.



Thursday, 28 April – Virtual sticker swap and remix OER22

From 12:00 BST on the final day of the conference, we invite you to remix and swap your favourite stickers at OER22. Head over to our social space on Discord and meet up in the Hallway Chat.

You can use the Fabulous Remixer Machine to create your own OER22 stickers, or improvise remixing our OER22 artwork created by Bryan Mathers.

You can also connect with participants who can bring back physical stickers from OER22 to where you are in the world.
