Open Education Week 2021 at the UAB

Imatge de l'OEW 2021

UAB lecturers, researchers and students are invited to participate in the activities organised by the UAB Libraries in promotion of open education, as part of the Open Education Week which is held worldwide from 1 to 5 March. To participate please sign up before 26 February.

The Open Education Week, to be held from 1 to 5 March, is an annual global initiative aimed for students and teachers to raise awareness about the advantages of implementing open educational resources and practices. Open Educational Resources (OER) are based on the recognition of authorship and public domain or an open license that permits no-cost access, use, adaptation and redistribution by others with no restrictions or limitations.

We encourage you to participate in this year’s activities to promote open education:
