Open Education Week 2022

7 Mar 2022

From Monday 7 till Friday 11 March, the 2022 edition of the international Open Education Week will take place! We welcome you to read the special edition of this Library+ Education Update in which we focus on open educational resources (OER). We start by busting some myths and explain what OER are and how you can use them for your educational practices, illustrated by UM teaching staff actively opening up their education. We take you along in how to find and use OER or even start sharing yourselves. And – last but not least – we invite you to participate in the Edusources project.

Activities during Open Education Week 2022

Open Education Week (OE Week) is an opportunity for actively sharing and learning about the latest achievements in Open Education worldwide.

Check out the Open education website for a schedule with all activities taking place, a collection of resources dedicated to the topic of open education and promotional materials. You could attend for example a webinar about innovative OER work in Ireland on Tuesday 8 March, at 11 am (12 CET), called Open Histology. If that’s too short notice, consider the session on Tuesday 15 March, also 11 am (12 CET), on podcasting as open education with an NUI Galway podcaster.

If you would rather stay close to home (and attend sessions related to Dutch initiatives), take a look at the webinar organised by several SURF SIG Open Education [Dutch] on Friday 11 March: Webinar Open pedagogy

Next to these activities, the European Network of Open Education Librarions recently published 16 interviews with OE ambassadors (amongst which is Maastricht University associate professor Costas Papadopoulos).
