The theme of the 2014 Conference of the OpenCourseWare Consortium is "Open Education for a Multicultural World". The conference will explore the international dimensions of open education, its diverse projects, new research, policy dimensions and impacts on teaching and learning.
The conference will take place in scenic Ljubljana, Slovenia from 23-25 April 2014. Early registration has started today.
I would also like the recommend the pre-workshop Getting started with Open Education: Everything you need to know to begin open education projects at your institution. The workshop is organised by the team of OpenCourseWare Europe:
This one-day interactive workshop will introduce you to principles, tools and techniques that will allow you to get started with open education at your institution or organization. Participants will gain practical knowledge of the benefits and potential pitfalls in starting projects, convincing faculty and administrators, and integrating open education into institutional practice through examples from institutions around the world.
