OE Week

OE Week 2023

Open Education Week is an annual celebration of the people and activities that apply open practices to education around the world.

Every year since 2012, events, activities, and challenges are held at schools, colleges, universities, libraries, and organisations by communities of teachers, librarians, students, policymakers, technologists, activists and enthusiasts. They spend one week in early March sharing, discussing and celebrating their contributions to Open Education, and encouraging more engagement and creation.
