This session will discuss the Creative Commons Open Education Platform, what it’s doing, and how to join. Everyone is welcome!

In early 2017, the Creative Commons Global Network completed a consultation process of renewing and reorganizing itself to support a strong and growing global movement. The year-long process resulted in the CC Global Network Strategy . Part of the new strategy is to establish defined areas of focus, or “platforms,” which will drive CC’s global activities. Platforms are how we organize areas of work for the CC community, where individuals and institutions organize and coordinate themselves across the CC Global Network.

In the spirit of openness and to effectively strategize, these platforms are open to all interested parties working in the platform area and adjacent spaces. The CC Open Education Platform is the space to:

• Stay connected to global actions in open education resources, practice, and policy.
• Identify, plan and coordinate multi-national open education, practices and policy projects to collaboratively solve education challenges with an amazing group of open education leaders from around the world.
• Secure funding (from Creative Commons and other funding sources) for the open education projects we collectively select.
• Contribute to global perspectives on open education to strengthen advocacy worldwide.
• Connect your country / region to global open education initiatives.
• Be on the forefront in implementing Creative Commons’ global network strategy.
• Meet annually, in-person, at the Creative Commons Summit with members of the CC Open Education Platform to celebrate successes, share best practices, and plan for the next year.
• Explore, practice, and share innovative methods for inclusive and open engagement with educators, learners and governments around the world.
