Open Education (OE) Fellows: Call for Participation

eCampusOntario is committed to raising awareness about the value and use of open educational resources (OER) and building capacity and expertise within member institutions to support a sustainable open education strategy for Ontario. A critical component of this strategy is the Open Education (OE) Fellows program. The program provides six (6) OE Fellows the opportunity to explore applied possibilities for OER to improve teaching practice and build learner-centred, open pedagogic models for others to refine and/or adopt.

Application submission due date is Monday, January 28, 2019 at 5:00 pm. 

Full details, including a link to the application package is available on the Call for Participation website.
