Welcome to the Open Education Global 2018 Conference!

We are very pleased to welcome you to the historic city of Delft, The Netherlands, from 24-26 April, 2018. The Open Education Global Conference is where the world meets to discuss, plan, reflect, collaborate, innovate and celebrate openness in education. Check out presentations from past conferences, and see what your colleagues and other past participants have said about OE Global.

Delft University of Technology joined the Open Education Consortium 10 years ago and for 10 years we have been committed to open education. We are honored to host the global conference in Delft. We will use this opportunity to strengthen our commitment to open education within Delft and the Netherlands and look forward to sharing our work with all of you.

New to the Open Education Global Conference? A special welcome to you, and an invitation to join us to hear about what’s going on around the world, share your experiences and ideas, meet some really dynamic people, and help us realize the open future of education.

The Open Education Awards for Excellence for 2018 will be presented on Tuesday during the Opening Reception & Awards Ceremony. These awards recognize distinctive open education projects, technological innovations, notable MOOCs and open courses, and exemplary leaders in Open Education worldwide.
