Open edX Conference 2019 Call for Proposals
Collaborative Learning. Community Led.

The Open edX Conference is where the Open edX community and leading experts in ed tech discuss the latest research, new approaches to learning, and best practices for integrating new technology into the (virtual) classroom. The enthusiastic, supportive community make this a unique, must-attend event.

The 2019 conference will be held March 26-29 in San Diego, California. Full details are here:

This year's event is focused on the growing importance of collaborative learning and how educators, students, and technologists are coming together to build the next generation of educational technology. We will discuss innovative uses across higher education, lifelong learning, instructional design, course production techniques, and methods for operating, extending and enhancing the Open edX platform.

The Open edX project is a collaborative learning platform spawned by edX, a nonprofit online initiative created by founding partners Harvard and MIT and composed of dozens of leading global institutions.

We welcome you to submit a session proposal for Open edX 2019. We are particularly interested in proposals in the following areas:

• Towards collaborative learning: blurring the lines between educators, learners and technologists
• Teaching open source collaboration
• Course authoring, production and promotion techniques
• Trends in online learning and training, for instance: online credentials, professional development, lifelong learning
• Analytics & research
• Technical deep dives
• Extending and integrating the platform
• Innovative courses, in particular in higher education, social impact, and professional development & training

Of course we will consider proposals outside of these areas as well, but these are the topics we are projecting for the conference.

We are accepting proposals for 45-minute breakout sessions, 10-minute lightning talks, and 90-minute or 3-hour tutorials/workshops (on Tuesday March 26th). If you have any questions, or would like to discuss other possibilities, please send us an email at

90-minute and 3-hour tutorial/workshop presenters attend Tuesday for free!

The deadline has been extended: please submit all proposals by December 7th, 2018.

We look forward to hearing from you.
