During Open Education Week, there will be an international series of webinars discussing topics of open educational practice and institutional collaboration, which is the work of the eMundus EU project. Hear from Wayne Mackintosh, Rory McGreal, and many others (even me) at a variety of times reflecting the different originating time zones. Would love to have you in for discussions!
