Event Description

Speaker: Paul Stacey, Senior Project Manager, Creative Commons


Contemporary open education practices are based on free software and free culture movements. Join Paul Stacey from Creative Commons as he explores the extent to which Open Educational Resources, MOOC’s, open access, and other open education innovations are embodying and leveraging these movements. Add your ideas to Paul’s as he imagines the possibilities open freedoms and open practices bring to education for faculty, students, and institutions. This wide ranging session will show how open is affecting every aspect of the university’s core mission – teaching, research, data, infrastructure, and community. Open freedoms have a corresponding set of ethical practices. There is growing expectation in the digital age, where the cost of copying and distributing resources is close to zero, that public funds should result in public goods. Governments and funders are increasingly putting in place open policy that requires grantees to openly license research and curricula created with public funds. Join Paul as he explores the ways in which digital technologies and contemporary open education practices are affecting the economics and traditional business models of education. Is open a major transformation of education? Decide for yourself at this Open Freedoms / Open Practices event.
