OE Global 2020 Conference will take place virtually through a combination of synchronous and asynchronous activities. The 2020 conference theme, Connecting the Global Open Education Community, signifies even more to our community during this unprecedented time. Social connection avenues will be a strategic part of the conference to provide additional opportunities for participants to engage about the content of presentations and in networking/collaboration opportunities. The theme is not only relevant because of the recently adopted UNESCO Recommendation on Open Educational Resources (OER), an important step for mainstreaming of Open Education. The theme is also timely given the recent pandemic. Now is an important time to come together to strengthen the connection of our open education community.
