We invite faculty, graduate students and academic staff to participate in this new conference, which will have two major streams of inquiry related to Open Educational Resources (OER) for foreign languages:

- 30-minute explorations of topics related to OER production and adoption. Topics might include student- and faculty-led campus initiatives, the integration of OER production into teacher training, obstacles to OER adoption, evaluation of OER for promotion/tenure, publishing platforms and issues of accessibility.
