What is the theme of OpenEd22?

The theme of the 2022 Open Education Conference is “Rise to Action”. By building on the last two themes, “Reimagining Open Education” and “Making Open for All”, “Rise to Action” focuses on the many ways the Open Education Conference community can take action to advance open education work, no matter where we are in our journey. 

“Rise to Action” is a call to move forward and act in concrete ways that make education more accessible, affordable, equitable and inclusive to everyone regardless of their background, experience, or level of access to resources. It is a call to rise up against the inequitable structures that have always existed in education, but have been further magnified by the complexities of the last few years. 

When, where, and who?

The 2022 Open Education Conference will be a vibrant event, with more than 200 live and pre-recorded sessions, daily plenary sessions, and social activities.
