The Irish Learning Technology Association is delighted and honoured to be nominated as the official supporting partner for the forthcoming OER19 Recentering open: Critical and global perspectives conference which will be held in the National University of Ireland, Galway on April 10-11 2019.
Being the first non-UK hosts of this prestigious event makes OER19 a very special engagement for the Irish technology enhanced learning community.

The Open Access movement has changed the world of publishing forever. As Open Access publishing evolves and gains momentum, traditional publishing houses have a hard time keeping up. The need for author-friendly, flexible and highly configurable systems, has left many publishers in the backwaters. More and more academic societies are now turning to open source technologies to manage digital publishing on their own. And that is where Open Academia comes in.
