The nonprofit Open Education Consortium (OEC) describes itself as a "global, member-based network of open education institutions and organizations" with a mission to "promote, support and advance openness in education around the world." Among its activities, every year the OEC hosts and coordinates Open Education Week (which, this year takes place from March 4-8, 2019), the Open Education Global Conference, and the Open Education Awards for Excellence, which highlight exceptional people as well as outstanding resources, tools, and practices in open education. Visitors to the OEC website can find links to open education resources, such as curriculum materials and webinars for open education practitioners, and information on the consortium's projects, including a collection of interviews with faculty and administrators on "the impact that open education projects and practice have had on their institutions." The OEC is based in Massachusetts and currently boasts well over 200 member organizations in more than 40 countries worldwide, including MIT, Open University Netherlands, and the University of Cape Town.
