Open Education Week is being celebrated this week around the globe. What is Open Education? It's a movement to reduce or eliminate barriers to learning, One approach to achieving the goals of open education is to develop, adapt, and adopt open educational resources, or OER's. 

A team of faculty and library staff at WPI has been working as part of a year-long AAC&U Institute to better understand the motivations, barriers, and avenues to integrating OER practices at WPI.

Want to learn more? Check the project site, for updates from the team as well as highlights of resources, events, and issues raised by OERs.
