Open Education Week is a celebration to raise awareness about free and open educational opportunities that exist for everyone, everywhere, right now. SPARC encourages campuses to participate in this annual international event by organizing events, sharing resources, and taking action to help celebrate the benefits of free and open sharing in education.

Here are some ideas for Open Education Week events:

  • Organize a panel discussion with stakeholders affected by open education. This may include a student, a professor, a librarian, and a member of the administration.
  • Invite a speaker to campus to present on open education. Consider partnering with the student government.
  • Write an article for a campus newsletter or newspaper.
  • Set up an open textbook display case in your library.
  • Conduct a video interview with a faculty member on campus who is using OER, and post it online.
  • Print out flyers and hand them out on campus.

 

The official Open Education Week hashtag is #openeducationwk. Also use #liboer to highlight the important role libraries play in advancing open education.
