University of Victoria Associate Faculty & GO-GN Fellow Michael Paskevicius is conducting some research on how the foundations of open education can be better integrated into teacher education programs.

He is looking for input from anyone interested or working in those areas. If you have 3-5 minutes and can complete his survey, he is donating $5 CAD (up to $1000) to the aid effort in Ukraine. #OER #OpenEducation michaelpaskevicius.com/2022/05

"If we are looking for things that are easy, the answers will be prescriptive. The answers will be big and they will be corporatized. If we want things to be small and holistic they will be hard. They will be work. They will make us take things that are imperfect and we need to be ok with that." @Telias on scalability of technology for her excellent #oer22 talk youtube.com/watch?v=USSA6dDoWs
