Open Education Week is an annual opportunity to raise awareness about open education and its impact on teaching and learning
worldwide. Open education encompasses resources, tools and practices that employ a framework of open sharing to improve educational
access and effectiveness. Participation in all events and use of all resources are free and open to everyone.
Open Education Week will run from 9-13 March this year, and is coordinated by The Open Education Consortium.
Experts, academics and practitioners from across the globe are invited to attend the 26th ICDE World Conference, hosted by
the University of South Africa, in South Africa from 14-16 October 2015. The call for papers deadline is fast approaching.
The conference will address open and distance learning in 21st century global higher education within the context of increasing demands for access, decreasing state resources and growing concern about the quality of provision. The Presidents' Summit will be held during the World Conference, and the High Level Policy Forum will be held on 17 October.
