Open Education Week (March 9-13) At a Glance

March 6, 2015

The 4th annual Open Education Week gets underway on Monday, March 9 with the theme The World Wants to Learn.  Open education encompasses resources, tools and practices that employ a framework of open sharing to improve educational access and effectiveness worldwide.  Open Education Week highlights open education efforts from around the world and provides an opportunity for educators, administrators, policy makers and learners to gain a greater understanding of open educational practices and impacts.

In addition to the many project showcases, informational videos and other resources, there is an amazing array of live webinars and local events.   Most webinars will be recorded and available for later viewing so no need to miss any of these events but just a quick reminder of CCCOER sponsored or relevant events broadcast during North American business hours.  Have a wonderful week and hope to see you online!
