Open Education Global initiated a 12 month internship program in 2022 aimed at providing students, newcomers or practitioners in the open education field an opportunity to gain practical experience by working directly with OEG staff on our development and capacity building activities. Apparently time was flown by as we are now introducing you to the inaugural generation of interns, almost as some of them are completing their projects.
