Held annually, OCWC Global reunites the OCW/OER community for three days of new project showcases, debates around issues of common concern, and the exchange of useful practices in matters such as pedagogy, policy and technology. As in previous years, you can expect OCWC Global to offer you a series of exceptional talks, a great opportunity to network with others in the OER community, a chance to learn about other projects and a place to show what you and your team are working on. Each year, OCWC Global takes place in a different part of the world, allowing the OCWC to partner with a different local community to increase its impact on educational access in that region. For example, in Vietnam, OCWC Global 2010 hosted the launch event of Creative Commons Vietnam. OCWC Global 2013 will be held jointly with the first Indonesian OCW Annual Meeting and Exhibition (INDO-AMEX 2013). This inaugural event will bring together local champions in open education, open licensing, open source development, and open access for forums and discussions aimed at the promotion of further sharing in Indonesia.
