We are @VConnecting from #OER17 on April 5-6, 2017

VC is an OER

Virtually Connecting is often an event, Virtually Connecting is a resource but Virtually Connecting is also a community. Many of us in the VC community are deeply connected to OER which makes this event extra special.

We welcome others to join us to become part of this movement, if you have not yet read “The Paradox of Inclusion” on this blog, you should do that right after deciding how to participate at #OER17.

We are excited to offer eight opportunities to connect virtually to the event and converse with the people at #OER17: The Politics of Open which is being held in London, UK on April 5 and 6 of 2017. We have onsite buddies Autumm Caines, Maha Bali, Christian Friedrich, Martin Weller, Sue Beckingham, Teresa Mackinnon, Suzan Koseoglu, and Rajiv Jhangiani connecting you through our virtual buddies Nadinne Aboulmagd, Alan Levine, Helen DeWaard, Simon Ensor, Mia Zamora, Joe Murphy and Ken Bauer. Conference keynotes, plenaries and main hall sessions are livestreamed, whereas Virtually Connecting sessions allow virtual participants to engage in conversations with onsite participants – it’s all informal, more like a conference hallway chat.

If you’re interested in joining any of these sessions, please sign up using this form or you can tweet us @vconnecting or leave a comment below. We’ll ask for your email address so we can send you a link to the session just before it goes live. Title times are local of the conference site, scroll below to find the times adjusted to your timezones and the links to watch the sessions live or recorded if you can’t make it into the session itself.

Part of what makes VConnecting special is the spontaneity – onsite guests may have to join us a little later than scheduled or leave early.
