A wealth of papers, workshops, training events, best practices and awards to teachers who excelled against all odds and obstacles dominated OCC. Four days of intensive discussions on the future of how open education, teacher competencies, community building, etc. can progress and respond to the challenges facing our continent. Congratulations to all those involved in organising the event (amidst elections and stormy weather conditions), as well as to all participants. Check out snapshots and smiles!
