Open for Teachers Introductory Workshop: A Review - Open for Teachers Introductory Workshop was organized in May 2018 in Lagos Nigeria through partial funding from Creative Commons Community Activities Fund. It introduced the secondary school teachers to the Open movement for the first time. The 3-day blended workshop engaged participants in open education resources (Licensing, Sourcing, Adopting & Creating), OER for classroom and facilitating technology in the classroom. 6 experts (including 3 online) facilitated the workshop. The model adopted made the workshop engaging despite participants' other active engagement in the classroom - John Okewole
