Upcoming March 1-5, 2021: Open Ed Week

Open Ed Week is March 1-5th!

This workshop will be rescheduled soon!

Please find the slide deck here

Textbook Affordability Workshop, new date TBD
In this workshop, CCC librarian Kerry Leek will talk through Textbook Affordability options, basic definitions, OER and Creative Commons copyright licensing. We will also talk through what support is available to you at CCC and statewide to make a shift in your class materials. There will be time to ask questions, explore options, and develop a plan of action. 

What is Open Ed week?  It is a week to celebrate, educate, learn, and explore all things to do with Open Education. Open Educational Resources (OER) and Open Educational Pedagogy (OEP) use open licensed materials rather than traditionally copyrighted materials. This saves money for students, but it also gives instructors control over their teaching tools. Whether you are new to Open Ed, or have been involved with it for a while, this week is a great way to learn more. 

Open Oregon has an excellent calendar of Oregon- specific webinars, student panels, and other amazing events from our peers around Oregon. But this is a global week of celebration, so check out the offerings of workshops, lectures, panels, webinars, and events from around the world on the Open Ed Week events page.
