    Georgia State University Library is accepting proposals for our Open Education Week celebration, to take place via WebEx on Friday, March 7, 2025 from 9:30am-4:30pm ET. 

    The mission of the Open for Student Success Symposium is to gather innovators who are implementing and studying the use of OER in higher education, to produce an annual collection of OER recordings and ancillary materials that advance the landscape of open education.  

    The Open for Student Success Symposium's scope includes everything relating to: 

    The symposium's theme this year is Open Education: Fueling Equity in Learning. 

    FACULTY + STAFF: We welcome proposals by ALL faculty and staff working with Open Educational Resources (OER) at an institution of higher education. This free online symposium will allow presenters to share their experience and wisdom with attendees who wish to learn more about OER. Faculty and staff may invite student collaborators as co-presenters. 

    STUDENTS: We welcome proposals for 20-minute lightning talks by Georgia State University students who have completed research or class projects that culminate in proposed or implemented strategies. Other submissions will also be considered.

    Proposals will be due by October 25, 2024. Decisions will be sent by November 15, 2024.
