Open Education Week 2024

Open Education Week Global 2024 logoEvery year in March, OE Global hosts a week-long global event called Open Education Week. Its goal is to raise awareness, showcase initiatives, and celebrate the impact of open education on teaching and learning worldwide. During Open Education Week, educators organize and conduct online and local events such as workshops, webinars, discussions, debates, and other activities for the public or specific audiences, such as faculty or students. All these events are listed on OE Global’s open education week website, providing a forum for promotion, participation, and curation.

Open Education Week has been running since 2013 and, over the years, has become a landmark event people plan for and anticipate. Open education week is one of the foremost global community events raising awareness and showcasing exemplary open education work worldwide.

Open Education Week 2024 is taking place from March 4-8, 2024.
