Open Education Week

Open Education Week

Hold the date! March 6-10, 2023

Open Education Week is an annual celebration of open education globally, and an opportunity to share open educational practice and resources. It is a space to learn about, and be inspired by, the amazing work done by the open education community around the world that is increasing access and equity in education.

Throughout the week, we will be highlighting some of the incredible open work done by UWindsor faculty, staff and students, hosting conversations about open practices, information about funding opportunities, and the support available to UWindsor and the community to work on open projects with the Office of Open Learning.

We also encourage you to explore Open Education Week's global calendar of #OEWeek events happening around the world through the Open Education Week calendar

At this time, there are no upcoming events in "Open Education Week".
Open Learning Community of Practice

Open Learning Community of Practice

Please join us for informal discussion on teaching in digitally enhanced environments. Our Community of Practice (CoP) “workshops” bring together instructors who share an interest in designing, developing, and teaching with digital technologies. We will meet once a month (over coffee!) on campus or on Teams.

Each month, we discuss a new tool or practice that you can use in your teaching. Come learn something new and be inspired to think outside the classroom. We encourage you to bring what you’re working on and share both challenges and successes.

Please register for each session and feel free to bring a friend!

Wordpress Workshop

Wordpress Workshop

ePortfolios have become a rapidly used tool in both reflective learning and instructor assessment. These series of workshops provide a basic introduction into the UWindsor branded ePortfolio system based in Wordpress. Students & instructors will learn what an ePortfolio is, why they are important, and how to build one. At the end of the workshop, participants will have the basics of their own personal ePortfolio live on the web.
Humanizing Digital Learning Certificate

Humanizing Digital Learning Certificate

Throughout the pandemic we were all forced to make decisions to deal with new and uncertain situations: our online learning decisions were no different. We have long established practices, developed over many years, to support a caring and engaged face-to-face classroom. Though, our online classrooms do not have the benefit of this experience. This is true for both the students and the professors.

This program, comprised of 6 courses (and supported by optional technical workshops) will address several key values including: openness, care, equity, developing potential, and pedagogy-first design. Together, we will critically analyze and reflect on the design of online and technology-enabled courses, discuss emerging and alternative pedagogies, explore the meaning of 'open', and apply new concepts to our own practice.

Each course will run over four weeks, with one 2-hour session each week, as well as opportunities for formative assessment. Participants will be expected to attend each session and engage with the material and assessments in order to achieve certification.
At this time, there are no upcoming events in "Humanizing Digital Learning Certificate".
