Today marks the start of Open Education Week (7-11th March 2016), a celebration and sharing of all things ‘open education’ and an opportunity to “raise awareness about free and open educational opportunities that exist for everyone, everywhere, right now” (Attrib: http://www.openeducationweek.org/). There are a range of ways in which to engage in Open Education Week and OEPS has a few things planned.
Tomorrow is International Women’s Day (#IWD2016 and #PledgeForParity). OEPS is celebrating by reviewing some contributions that inspirational women, who are leaders in the field of open educational practice, have kindly contributed to the project.
#OEPSForum4 takes place on Wednesday 9th March at the Stirling Court Hotel. We are very excited to welcome Josie Fraser as our keynote speaker. If you haven’t booked your place yet it’s not too late – the event is free and you can register via Eventbrite. If you can’t make it then watch out for the tweets throughout the day using the hashtag #OEPSForum4 and for the blog posts, slideshares and videos posted on our website after the event.
Also this week OEPS is publishing another good practice case study on the OEPS hub. This case study showcases the work of Stephanie McKendry in widening participation at the University of Strathclyde.
