Open Education Week events

You might be thinking, what is Open Education Week?  Well, it is nothing less than a week of events, online and live local, aimed at raising awareness of the open education movement.  And what is the open education movement, you query?  It’s about sharing, reducing barriers, and increasing access to education.
