Call for Attendee Nominations: OeLE Event

**Deadline: November 25, 2019**

The OeLE has been designed by the CARL Open Education Working Group as a way to provide Canadian library practitioners active in open education with the information, skills and resources to lead in this area. The event will engage participants with presentations, community building sessions, and hands-on activities that will provide participants with the building blocks to implement OE programs on their own campuses.

This event is intended for active open education practitioners within libraries at Canadian post-secondary educational institutions. Given that there is a maximum registration of 65 for this workshop, the organizers will prioritize regional representation while also ensuring participation of those with demonstrated engagement with open education when deciding on the final attendee list.

Important notes:

  • Only one nomination should be submitted per institution. Please ensure the individual nominated is able to attend the event on January 27-28, 2020. (Note: In the event that all 65 spaces are not taken by unique representatives from Canadian institutions, we will turn to a waitlist. To have a second person from your institution added to this waitlist, please email
  • Nominations must be submitted by the institution’s University Librarian or Associate University Librarian (or equivalent) no later than Monday, November 25th, 2019. We are aiming to communicate the list of selected attendees on Monday, December 2. Please note that there will be a registration fee of $100, but that this fee will be waived for members of the CARL Open Education Working Group.
  • CARL member libraries will each have one secured seat for the event. However, the secured seat will be opened to others if a nomination is not received by the deadline.

Please note that in the months following the event, OeLE participants will be expected to collaborate with the CARL Open Education Working Group to extend this learnings into their regions via the creation and  delivery of introductory satellite events which aim to develop a general understanding of core open education concepts and issues across academic libraries across the country.
