  • Introduction... a good place to start is to ask... yesterday - education and training.\n
  • So as vague as its name -- the School of Open -- may sound, it really came from very concrete and humble beginnings. The original problem that was trying to be solved was how to clear up misconceptions teachers had about copyright law that prevented them from taking advantage of all the free stuff that was out there, such as open educational resources. Copyright 4 educators was born... \nSo then after running a few cycles of those courses, we thought what about Copyright 4 Librarians? And then you can see how the thinking evolved from there... since copyright affects other domains as well. And if you step back a little more, you can see that there might be other closed systems, in addition to copyright, that make peoples lives harder. And that’s how the idea for the School of Open was born and came to be the fledgling sort of initiative it is today..\n

  • Introduction... a good place to start is to ask... yesterday - education and training.\n
  • Open is a means to an end... So in answer to the first slide -- what problem are we trying to solve... (statement). This statement is a work in progress, but you can see what we mean by it. Just as Copyright 4 Educators takes a specific issue that applies to educators and helps them to understand it better, we’re thinking that “open” can help a lot of other audiences at the same time. And that the School of Open just might be the place where that can happen. But we think that it will only happen if those communities want and need to, which is why we’re floating the concept with you all today for feedback, especially to help us think through what kinds of topics and courses should be part of a School of Open. \n
  • Before we go into the overview and roadmap, we want to hold a little bit of discussion, answering questions about the origins. Some of your questions will probably be answered throughout the course of the day, or in the remainder of this session, so I’m going to keep track of questions we don’t get to (which you can add to at any point in the day) in the percolator. If we don’t get to them now, tehre will definitely be time after lunch to hold a discussion about the big ideas behind the School. But we’re also pretty confident in the Aspiration tech style workshop model, which usually results in rough consensus on major topics through breakout style collective brainstorming.\n

  • Because the P2PU model is not only about making the traditional model of learning accessible to everyone, it’s also about reaching beyond the traditional model of learning and enabling peer learning for anyone, anywhere, at anytime.\n

  • At School of Open, we want both. Ideally, we’d have a few facilitated courses running at quarterly intervals, or to fit professional development schedules of various org’s, while AT THE SAME TIME we have courses that anyone can take either independently or in study groups. \n
  • We really are looking at open tools and focuses across the board... we need your help. to determine some more focus areas and top courses in those areas.\n
  • We are going to determine the focus areas today. This is what we are going to be doing today.\n
  • \n
  • \n
  • replace with key word slogans\n
  • if there are questions about clarification, we’ll answer. if there are questions about what is the right way or about process, we’ll have plenty of time to go into those.\n
  • \n
  • You are all experts in your various open domains, whether its Open Access, Open Software, Open Science... or you have an interest in openness. Think of the person in your field that needs help doing X activity. Who is that person? Describe him or her. \n
  • (Jane present example) You are all experts in your various open domains, whether its Open Access, Open Software, Open Science... or you have an interest in openness. Think of the person in your field that needs help doing X activity. Who is that person? Describe him or her. Draw that person and give her or him a name. Then list the following under him. \n
