All SCoPE participants in our OERu planning seminar are invited to join the 2nd meeting of OERu partners on 31 October and 1 November 2013.

The plenary sessions will be streamed live with a microblog back-channel for remote participants.  During the breakout sessions, we will provide technologies for virtual participants to work on design solutions for the same problems which will be fed back into the main meeting. 

You can register your interest on WikiEducator to attend as virtual participant and we will send you email announcements to keep you up to date and post reminders of the session times.

Look forward to seeing you all online during our landmark meeting and official launch of the OERu.

I'll be there (virtually) as much as the time difference allows! Do you have session times yet, or some idea of session times--will they be essentially business hours in Kamloops' time zone, or staggered for other time zones?

Hi Mika,

We don't have the session times yet as we are drafting the agenda from the inputs during this SCoPE seminar. The meeting will be business hours in the Kamloops time zone. If you sign up as a virtual participatant we will communicate all the information you need to participant.

We won't stagger time zones -- the logistics are too hard for a large international meeting like this. However, we will record the live webcast of the pleneary sessions for later viewing and incorporate asynchronous opportunities for the virtual participant breakout groups.
