  • was envisioned with the United States Constitution.Meant to protect creativity and foster innovation. How does this protection play out today with digital technologies and the ability to disseminate information, creativity and expression one to many or many to many?
  • Growing movement of open sharing, transparency and resource development that address facets of these new opportunities and networks of knowledge. Focus today on what we call Open Educational Resources: materials developed in a teaching setting that are licensed so that others may use and adapt them to suit their needs.Open Access is a larger movement: information is freely available (open access journals, etc.) but not always licensed to use by others.Open Educational resources are all sorts of materials that are licensed for use downstream.
  • provides even more opportunities for sharing and for using these materials in a variety of settingsoutside of the protected 4 walls of closed education systemsallows for teaching and learning to happen formally and informally. Creative Commons are the most used licenses for content but there are software licenses (GNU) that can be used. It also: increases the visibility of your workprovides new opportunities for networking
  • Increase the reach of your work: this is what you can do when something is made available under a creative commons license: you can build on someone else’s work and express it in a new way.
  • U-M OER has these components:pieces of a course publish each separately availablemultiple formatsEDT 585: Open Pedagogy—A New Paradigm for Teaching and Learning, Winter 2010OER can be a collection that was compiled together like this: built from courses that are taught at universitiesCan be one presentation.

  • Initiatives like ours: Open.MichiganFounded in 2008, piloted in 2007 at the Medical School here at U-M. Goal to make high quality medical education available and useful to the rest of the world.We work with over 10 schools across the University now, publishing course materials, student projects, research.Over 70 courses published; hundreds of individual resources and pieces of content; over 40 faculty participation and student driven. 127 countries represented looking at our work.
