Open Education Week Online Events

This week is Open Education Week!

Open Education Week is a celebration of the global Open Education Movement. Its goal is to raise awareness about the movement and its impact on teaching and learning worldwide.

At Campus Manitoba, we envision a future for education that’s open. We actively spread awareness of OER (Open Educational Resources) to save students money and enhance teaching and learning across the province. In celebration of Open Education Week, we’d like to invite you to participate in events happening online.
