Open Education Week

Open Education Week, March 4-8, 2019 is a global event to raise awareness about the benefits of Open Educational Resources (OER). OER include teaching, learning and research resources such as textbooks, assignments, modules and syllabi, that are freely accessible, openly licensed and can be used, shared or modified by anyone.

In support of Open Education Week, McMaster University Library has created two displays located in the lobbies of Mills and Thode Libraries. These displays include a number of high-quality open textbooks recently acquired by the Library courtesy of eCampusOntario, a not-for-profit educational organization funded through the Government of Ontario. To see the full collection of open textbooks available from eCampusOntario, search or browse the Open Textbook Library.

In celebration of Open Education Week, please see the campus events scheduled below. These events are sponsored by McMaster University Library and eCampusOntario.
