Open Education Conference

Advancing open education practices

4-6 April 2023, Inverness, Scotland

We are proud to announce that the 14th annual conference for Open Education research, practice and policy is organised by ALT, the Association for Learning Technology, in partnership with UHI, the University of the Highlands and Islands.

UHI has a unique place and deep roots in its communities, and we are looking forward to bringing OER participants from the UK and across the world to its campus in Inverness in the heart of the Scottish Highlands.

OER23 will bring together the strong Scottish Open Education movement and international participants to leverage our shared expertise for change in policy and practice.

The conference will be co-chaired in partnership with the GO-GN Global OER Graduate Network, connecting emerging researchers and a global perspective with local and national knowledge.
