Started in 2012, Open Education Week is an annual event that aims to raise awareness and highlight open education efforts worldwide. OE Week provides instructors, practitioners and students with an opportunity to gain an understanding of open educational practices (OEP) and be inspired by the wealth of open educational resources (OER) being developed by the global community. OER Week at McMaster is being presented by McMaster University Libraries and the MacPherson Institute.
Interested in how instructors are incorporating open education into their teaching? Hear from the 2020-2021 OER Grantees as they update us on their awarded projects. Learn about the projects (one Adaptation and two Creation); hear about the grantees’ experiences with exploring new teaching approaches using OER; and hear about students’ experiences with contributing to course content. There will be time for questions and discussion after the presentations. Learn more about the OER Grant which will be offered again in Spring 2021.
