Call for Proposals: Open and Affordable Community Forum

Posted on: June 6, 2023

The VIVA Open and Affordable Community Forum covers existing and emerging issues in open education, open pedagogy, and open educational resources. 

This year’s forum will be held on Friday, October 13, 2023. The event will be hybrid, allowing attendees to join in person (at Virginia Commonwealth University) or virtually. 

The theme for 2023, “Open for Creation: The Power of Belonging,” seeks to explore the diverse ways that adopting, adapting, and creating Open Educational Resources (OER) fosters belonging, equity, and care. 

Call for Proposals (due July 21): Any faculty member in Virginia is invited to submit a proposal for a workshop, panel or presentationthat considers the impact of creating OER and adopting open practices in meeting the needs of learners and instructors. Submit your proposal by July 21.

Questions? Please contact Liz Thompson, JMU’s Open Education Librarian, who is leading the forum’s planning committee.
