Information on OER for students at CCBC. Let's make an OpenCCBC!

Welcome to Open Education Week 2021

OE Week 2021 LogoAn annual celebration, Open Education Week (OE Week) is an opportunity for actively sharing and learning about the latest achievements in Open Education worldwide.

Started in 2012 by the Open Education Global as a collaborative, community-built open forum, Open Education Week seeks to raise awareness and highlight open education efforts worldwide. OE Week provides students an opportunity to gain a greater understanding of open educational practices and be inspired by the wonderful work being developed by the community around the world.

Open Education Week 2021 is March 1 - 5. The CCBC OER/Textbook Affordability Committee will be organizing each day around a particular theme within open education. Each day will feature webinars, resources, websites, videos, and more to encourage infusion of open educational practices. In addition to this exciting week of events, the CCBC Library has guides for both faculty and students on OER and Open Education.
