The University Computing Centre (SRCE) is taking part in the international Open Education Week, this year from March 7th to 11th, 2022. Open Education Week is an opportunity for actively sharing and learning about the latest achievements in Open Education and for raising awareness on innovative open education successes worldwide. Open Education Week is organized annually since 2012, and SRCE has been a participant in this global initiative since 2015.
This year, SRCE joins this initiative with two webinars on March 9th, 2022:

- Otvoreni obrazovni sadržaji u nastavi – zašto, kako, kada? (Open educational content in teaching - why, how, when?) starting at 12:00 p.m.
The first webinar will highlight the results of international researches on how much and in which way OER is utilized in teaching and learning, with a focus on the period of the pandemic.

The findings of these researches will be used to address the problem of OER awareness and its potential in the academic community and open floor for discussion.
The second webinar aims to raise awareness of teachers and all those interested in education on the potential of open educational resources and to give practical advices why, how and when they could be used.
Webinars will be held using the SRCE webinar system, and registration is required for attendance.
