SPARC Announces 2018-2019 Open Education Leadership Fellows

From Nicole Allen at SPARC:

We are pleased to announce the 2018-2019 cohort for the SPARC Open Education Leadership Program, the preeminent professional development initiative for advancing open education leadership in academic libraries. The cohort is comprised of 24 fellows from SPARC member libraries spanning 17 U.S. states and Canadian provinces, and includes representation from a diverse set of institutions, levels of experience, and areas of interest. The fellows were selected from a broad and competitive application pool, and will build upon the success of the program’s pilot cohort who completed the program earlier this summer.

Launched last year, the SPARC Open Education Leadership Program offers intensive training to empower library professionals with the knowledge, skills, and connections to lead successful open education initiatives that benefit students.
