Open education week

Open education week (OEW) is a global initiative that intends to raise awareness and spotlight open education projects and work. At Waterloo, the series is coordinated by the Open Scholarship Committee, an umbrella group comprising staff from the Library, Centre for Teaching Excellence (CTE), Centre for Extended Learning (CEL), the Bookstore, as well as faculty members. This year we are excited to host a series of sessions on March 7th to highlight some of the ongoing work in open education at Waterloo.

To explore OERs created at Waterloo, please refer to Waterloo's open teaching and learning initiatives
