Open Education Week

March 5-10 is Open Education Week. There is a strong connection between the idea of open education and  technology-supported community engagement.One of the reasons that we support experiential education and community-centered learning is that teaching and learning is not confined to classroom settings. Education is about sharing ideas and discussing those ideas with other people interested in having the conversation.

To explore what open education looks like around the world, check out the Open Education Week website. For a quick open education 101, check out the short piece below from open education advocate, David Wiley.
