OC for SS Community Digest // 07-20-2022

The third annual OER Conference for Social Studies is coming August 3 and 4, and we can’t wait to see you there! In addition to an amazing line up of keynotes, live discussions and Track Talks, we also have a community discussion forum where your fellow conference participants will be talking OC for SS programming and content before, during, and after the event.  

To help you stay on top of everything, you’ll receive a twice-weekly OC for SS Community Digest between now and the conference. We’ll use these digests to highlight can’t-miss conversations on the OC for SS forum. Check out the first few threads down below!
