Open Education Week

A series of events for instructors to share and learn about Open Educational Resources (OER)

11:00 am–1:00 pm
Beverly Russell,
The week’s events will kick off with guest speaker Tanya M. Spilovoy, instructor for SPARC’s (the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition) Open Education Leadership program, a first-of-its-kind professional development program to empower librarians as leaders for successful open education initiatives. Spilovoy’s presentation, Be a Light: Open Education in a Time of Uncertainty will be conducted Tuesday, March 8 at 11:00 a.m. CT.

NU’s Open Education Week’s events are part of the Open Nebraska initiative, which aims to amplify the usage of free and reduced cost digital course materials and expand the transparency of participating courses and programs across the NU System. As of the Spring 2022 semester, these efforts have saved students across the NU System over $9 million.

Faculty panels, speed sessions, and a virtual poster session are among the week’s events that will highlight OER efforts across the University of Nebraska, as well as provide ideas for instructors who are considering using OER materials in their courses.

All events will be held between 11 and 1 via Zoom. See the schedule for details.
