CARL, along with sponsor BCcampus, presents the Open Education Leadership Essentials Event (OeLE), a two-day event designed by the CARL Open Education Working Group to provide Canadian library practitioners with the information, skills and resources to lead open education initiatives. The event will engage participants with presentations, community building sessions, and hands-on activities that will provide participants with the building blocks to implement OE programs on their own campuses. This event is open to participants from any Canadian post-secondary educational institution.

Although presentations will be in English, all documentation related to the event will be available in both English and French.
