Open education webcast – March 7

Students in library with laptop

The Library will host a webcast on Wednesday, March 7 in recognition of Open Education Week.  

About the webcast

The open education movement has grown dramatically in recent years. Much of this growth is due to the increasing availability of innovative open educational resources, programs and initiatives spanning multiple institutions. This webcast will explore the challenges of these types of initiatives as well as their potential to affect a large number of students and make ‘open’ the default in education.
