You are invited to participate in a series of FREE webcasts celebrating Open Access Week (Oct. 21-27, 2013).  These webcasts will explore major issues and opportunities of Open Access and Open Educational Resources.  Each session will feature an internationally known promoter and developer of open access and open educational resources research or ideas. Topics will include the following

  • the state of the art in the distribution of e-textbooks;
  • open access books in the K12 schools of Brazil;
  • the open access situation in Canada;
  • MOOCs and the open access movement;and
  • the OER university initiative.

 

and other issues relating to Open Access internationally.  This event is sponsored by the UNESCO/Commonwealth of Learning Chair in Open Educational Resources (OER), Dr. Rory McGreal, the Council of Prairie and Pacific University Libraries (COPPUL), and Athabasca University Library.
