Registration details to follow

The Open Education Leadership Essentials Event (OeLE) is a two-day event, designed by the CARL Open Education Working Group, to provide Canadian library practitioners with the information, skills and resources to lead open education initiatives. 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 open to participants from any Canadian post-secondary educational institution. [Update: Please note that due to limited space, registration will be limited to one person per institution. A second person may be added to the waiting list for inclusion should the event not reach capacity.]

Although presentations will be in English, all documentation related to the event will be available in both English and French.
