I am a newbie to OER conferences, and #OER16 was the first I attended. It was fun, informative and helped me move forward my ideas about Open Education. I loved it, and live blogged and blogged quite a few keynotes and sessions.
If Open Education is something you do or plan to do, why not consider registering for OER17 . The theme is The Politics of Open, a topic that becomes more relevant by the day. The Conference Chairs Josie Fraser and Alek Tarkowski were prescient in their choice of theme and today a session was announced that will provoke lively discussion

The themes address politics in a broad sense:
- Local, national, and international policy and practice
- Institutional/organisational politics
- Participation & social equality
- Open Party
Here are five good reasons to attend OER17
- there are lots of varied and interesting presentations, panels and workshops, check out the programme
- you can see three keynotes from speakers who lead in Open Education across a spectrum of activities
- you can participate in an interactive plenary
- you can network with OER researchers, practitioners and exhibitors
- you’ll have fun and cake
So check out the website and watch this video if you want to know more.
You can register here. Hope to see you in London next month.
