Are you interested in the latest social learning research and practice?


OpenLearning is pleased to announce our first annual conference this November! 


This is the official conference course, that will be used before, during and after the conference.


This course is ideal for conference attendees, as well as anyone who is interested in social learning and unable to join us at the 2-day event.

This course gives you the opportunity to play an active role in the conference. Among experiencing social learning activities that connect to the themes of the conference, you will also be able to post questions for our speakers that may shape their talks.

The conference course is also the perfect hub for networking and interacting with other attendees and educational peers, as well as accessing all of the artefacts, photos and materials from the conference. What's more, if you're interested in learning more about the conference themes in a blended learning approach, this course is ideal as we put into action the concepts that the conference explores.


The conference is hosted in collaboration with the Malaysian Public Universities e-Learning Council (MEIPTA), and will take place at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia on 27-28th November 2017.
