Open Education Week is this week — 11-15 March 2013. Well, actually, some of the events began this past Sunday the 10th March. I have not checked out Open Video Sudan yet — that was one which began on Sunday — but it sounds fascinating and seems to be running each morning. I presented in a webinar that we did in Leicester yesterday: New global open educational trends: policy, learning design, mobile — along with my three colleagues Professor Grainne Conole, Dr Ming Nie, and Bernard Nguyubwatsi. Click here if you’d like to see the presentations and recording.
I would urge anyone interested in open education, and in the future of education in general, to check out join in the Open Education Week 2013 offerings. Open Education Week is organised by the Open Courseware Consortium. A big thank you to Igor Lesko for his hard work to coordinate and present and administer this year’s offerings!
