As part of the international Open Education Week, the University of Helsinki’s Think Open Digest journal publishes a special issue on Open Education. The issue is aimed at teachers working at higher education institutions – to support their work and to share some new ideas.

Open education has been one of the emerging themes in open science in recent years, and the theme has been widely discussed also in Finland within the framework of national Open Science coordination. Think Open Digest’s special issue presents articles, services, tools, guides, and recommendations related to the theme of open education and learning.

The issue has been assembled by a team that includes members from different institutions: Päivi Helminen and Kati Syvälahti (University of Helsinki), Aino Helariutta ja Minna Fred (Laurea University of Applied Sciences), Anna Lindfors (CSC – IT Center for Science) ja Ilmari Jauhiainen (The Federation of Finnish Learned Societies, Open Science). Juuso Ala-Kyyny (University of Helsinki), editor for Think Open Digest, has coordinated the project.
