I've been working with Dr Kathryn Moyle and Ian Ralph to put together a one day forum on Open Education. We've called it Open Edge 2009. The program has been finalised, and I've just put together a one page flyer - to help with last minute promotion to get the word out. Would love it if you could forward on to anyone in your networks you think would be interested!

This one day forum will address issues around 'open education' in Australian schools. We hope the forum will bring together school leaders, practitioners and policy makers to discuss strategies for fostering open education.
Open Edge is being put together by a small team of independent committed professionals working together to improve knowledge and connections in the growing Open Education space. The converging realities of Open Source Software, Open Access to content, and emergence of Open Learning and Open Pedagogy make this an exciting time.
Our vision for this forum is to create a place for school leaders, practitioners and policy makers to come together to develop long term strategies for fostering open education in Australian schools.
