Upcoming Open Education Training Opportunities

Following up on our October 16 webinar on accessibility in OERs, CARL’s Open Education Working Group is offering three additional webinars (descriptions below) which are a good opportunity to become familiar with core issues related to open education and open educational resource development. 

These webinars are free and open to all, but will be of particular interest to those attending the OeLE Event on January 27-28, Toronto, ON (see Save the Date).  The OeLE sessions and activities will assume a certain level of familiarity with this content. The nomination process for this event will be announced shortly.
