Open Education Week is a celebration of the global Open Education Movement. Its purpose is to raise awareness about the movement and its impact on teaching and learning worldwide.
Libraries can and should support open education. But before libraries do so, it is useful to understand the open education movement as a whole, including some of the key challenges facing both OERs and MOOCs and how libraries are well positioned to help address these challenges.
ACRL White Paper "Environmental Scan of OERs, MOOCs, and Libraries: What Effectiveness and Sustainability Means for Libraries’ Impact on Open Education" enables us understand the open education movement and our professional obligation to promote universal, affordable, quality education.
