CAL OER August 4-6, 2021


On behalf of the Cal OER Organizing Committee, we invite you to save the date for the 2021 Cal OER Conference, held virtually on August 4 - 6. This event is free and open to everyone, so we hope you can attend and consider presenting. 


Cal OER will focus on OER efforts and impact, broadly defined, across the state of California and especially across the state’s three public higher education systems, the California Community Colleges, California State University, and University of California. Individuals submitting proposals will be asked to identify which of the following tracks is most aligned with their proposal: 

  1. Engaging Students in OER 
  2. Advocating for OER 
  3. Sustaining OER  
  4. Exploring OER 
  5. Demonstrating the Impact and Efficacy of OER 
  6. Open Pedagogy 


Proposals that focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion are expected and anticipated in all tracks.  

The call for proposals will be out soon, so please watch for it.
