Digital Learning Day: Joint North Carolina and Virginia RISE OER Unconference

Digital Learning Day: Joint North Carolina and Virginia RISE OER Unconference 

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Digital Learning Day, on February 25, 2021

#GoOpenNC and #GoOpenVA will be hosting a free unconference around how openly-licensed resources (OER) support educators to “rise” to the challenges of the pandemic and post-pandemic learning environment. 

The RISE OER Unconference is free to all educators and will be held virtually from 2:30-5:00 pm (EST) on February 25.

Registration  by February 24 is required. 

REGISTRATION

The unconference format will promote sharing among educators of our two states, organized around essential questions regarding materials, strategies and tools. 

Educators may self select into groups of people with the same role as themselves, or they may choose to join a group made up of a variety of educators. 

We invite all educators to come, share, and learn as we celebrate how Digital Learning and openly-licensed resources can truly help educators not just reinvent, but rise above challenges we all face.
