CCCOER Webinar: Open Education Leadership

For nearly two years, the COVID-19 pandemic and the social injustices happening in the U.S. thrust leaders in higher education institutions to reflect, navigate, and strengthen their operations. Specifically, they were uniquely challenged to improve student success, all the while ensuring inclusivity, equity, accessibility, and social justice. Open education has been an obvious route for many institutions to help reach these institutional goals. This webinar will feature leaders who will share their strategies in supporting and enhancing the teaching and learning environments by way of open education.
