Open Education Week

Updated Tuesday, 23rd February 2021

Open Education Week is a celebration of the global Open Education Movement. We've got involved by sharing our best open educational resources with you. 

Open Education Week (1st - 5th March 2021) 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.

We're all about 'openess' here on OpenLearn, so to mark this event we've pulled together our guides to open educational resources plus our most popular free courses, interactives, videos and more... We also have resources plus a researcher pack from The Open University's OER Hub.


The OER Hub

The Open Education Research Hub (OER Hub) at The Open University are leaders in researching the impact of open educational resources (OER) on teaching and learning practices. The OER Hub team has extensive expertise in authoring and developing open online courses. The following courses have all been produced by members of the Hub and represent an ideal personal and staff development suite of courses in understanding different aspects of open practice. These courses are open entry and can be studied at any time...

OER Hub - Researcher Pack

As an open research project the OER Hub is committed to sharing its research instruments. During the first phase of the project they released a range of our openly licensed tools. In December 2016 they launched an accompanying Pressbook: The OER Hub Researcher Pack. This toolkit was created to help potential users understand how they’d used their tools and methodologies in practice. All of the Toolkit is openly licensed (CC-BY) and can be reused and repurposed. 

If you do use any of the survey questions, please consider sharing the results with the OER Hub so that they can add them to their Impact Map.
