Next week is the third Open Education Week. Open Education Week is a series of events to increase awareness of open education movement. There are both online and offline events around the world. Through the events and resources, we hope to reach out to more people to demonstrate what kind of opportunities open education has created and what we have to look forward to.
At our university will will organise three events. The events are free to join, but you have register:
- March 12th Lunch Launch: Delft Extension School (12:30 - 14:00h, Hive, TU Library).Rob Fastenau, e-Dean of the Delft Extension School, will tell you something about the activities of the Delft Extension School and the possibilities of online worldwide education.
