Open government initiatives can be a valuable platform for expanding open education and open policy around the world. Through the Open Government Partnership (OGP), a multilateral initiative of 75 countries, more than 10 countries have adopted commitments on open education and open licensing policies - from the United States to Slovakia to Chile. This session will explore the opportunities for the CC network to leverage OGP and other open government initiatives in their countries to open up publicly funded resources, and engage the public to use, build upon, and benefit from it.

Hi! I'm Nicole Allen, Director of Open Education for SPARC and part of the Organizing Committee of OpenCon 2016. My day job is leading SPARC's work on Open Education, including advocating for U.S. federal and state policy, supporting on-campus efforts to advance OER through academic libraries, and international advocacy for open education through the Open Government Partnership. I also help out with organizing OpenCon by coordinating the application and review process, and logistics for attendees. I've been working to advance open education since I graduated university about ten years ago (even before), and have a background in grassroots organizing and policy advocacy.
