Contest challenging students to promote Open Education Resources

As part of Open Education Week, March 4 to 8, the Office of Open Learning is hosting a series of events and sponsoring a friendly competition for students to create promotional material highlighting open educational resources, with the winners receiving Visa gift cards.

Entrants must create a resource that promotes the use of open educational resources (OERs). This can be any sort of resource: video, poster, song, social media friendly resource, or AI app, but must be shared under a creative commons license so that others can use and share.

The resource or a link to it must be shared to the Qualtrics link by noon Thursday, March 7.

The first-place winner will get $200 as a Visa gift card. The second- and third-place entries will receive $125 and $75 respectively.

The contest is open to any undergraduate or graduate student at the University of Windsor. To learn more, check out the Qualtrics link.
