Friday, March 3rd, 8am-2pm

3504 Harry Langdon Boulevard

Council Bluffs, IA

This event will be held at Lewis Central High School.

For more information and to register, visit the event page on Eventbrite.

Attendance at the one day summit is free. The #GoOpen Regional Summit will provide an opportunity for classroom teachers, school librarians, instructional coaches, and district and state leaders to explore opportunities to expand the use of high quality, openly licensed educational resources in classrooms.

#GoOpen Regional Summits have three tracks:

TRACK 1 - For districts that are not currently a #GoOpen District, but interested in Open Education Resources (OER) and possibly joining #GoOpen.

TRACK 2 - For new #GoOpen Districts that want to learn more about next steps.

TRACK 3 - #GoOpen Districts where work has started.

Existing #GoOpen districts are encouraged to send a team of three to five people that are directly working with their #GoOpen work. Districts that are not currently #GoOpen districts but interested are encouraged to send superintendents, curriculum directors, and teacher leaders who would be responsible to lead the effort if they choose to join.

Please register all attendees at the button below so we can get an accurate number for logistics.
