Dear All,

*As discussed at the Open Education Working Group Call 
<http://education.okfn.org/minutes-from-1st-working-group-call/> we 
would like to appoint an Advisory Board to support the Open Education 
Working Group.

"The advisory board will contain high-profile Open Education advocates 
who are unable to commit regular time to the Working Group itself but 
are experts in the field. The Advisory Board will provide thought 
leadership about the direction of the working group and help to raise 
the profile of the working group by talking about the group and their 
work at conferences and events." (from the charter 
<http://education.okfn.org/charter/> - wording still up for discussion)

You can see example advisory boards by looking at the Open Science 
Working Group <http://science.okfn.org/about-us/advisory-board/> and the 
Open GLAM Working Group <http://openglam.org/advisory-board/>.

We would like to take suggestions from the working group community for 
who could sit on this board. Obviously there are no guarantees that 
these people will be willing to take on this role, we can but approach them.

If you have an idea for a person then could you add it to this etherpad 
<http://pad.okfn.org/p/Open_Education_Working_Group_Advisory_Board> - 
there are a few suggestions in there already so don't worry about being 
the first. It would be helpful if you could add details such as contact 
information, their location, their role and why they should be 
considered. We are keen to have a diverse Advisory Board so please do 
contribute your suggestions and think global!
