The Open Education Special Interest Group (OESIG) was established in March 2012.
Education has the power to transform lives but too often access is restricted. Among those excluded are those who lack the right qualifications, who cannot pay the fees or who are unable to accommodate a fixed schedule. The Open Education movement seeks to remove barriers to education by freely sharing educational resources and adopting open educational practices.
The remit of this SIG is to support, develop, sustain and influence policy in open education.
