  13. 13. Spelling out freedoms and restrictions “Open licences, including the Creative Commons licences, provide educators and everyone else with a clear, simple way to specify how resources can be used and reused, and how the work should be credited.” LILAC 2017 Josie Fraser @josiefraser
  14. 14. What does an openly licensed resource look like?

  17. 17. What makes an educational resource open? Cable Green (2016): “two conditions that should guide your determination as to whether or not an item is considered ‘open’: • Do you have ‘free and unfettered access’ to the resource? If you have to pay to retain or use a resource, it isn't open. • Is use of the resource governed by David Wiley's 5Rs of Openness permissions?” LILAC 2017 Josie Fraser @josiefraser
  18. 18. The UNESCO 2012 Paris Declaration recommends that member states should: Foster awareness and use of OER. Promote and use OER to widen access to education at all levels, both formal and non-formal, in a perspective of lifelong learning, thus contributing to social inclusion, gender equity and special needs education. Improve both cost-efficiency and quality of teaching and learning outcomes through greater use of OER. LILAC 2017 Josie Fraser @josiefraser

  23. 23. What about open practice? LILAC 2017 Josie Fraser @josiefraser
  24. 24. “Open educational practices, known as OEP, have a range of definitions. In the narrowest sense, OEP are "practices which support the production, use and reuse of high quality OER" (International Council for Open & Distance Education). A broader view is espoused in the Capetown Open Education Declaration: "Open education is not limited to just open educational resources. It also draws upon open technologies that facilitate collaborative, flexible learning and the open sharing of teaching practices that empower educators to benefit from the best ideas of their colleagues. It may also grow to include new approaches to assessment, accreditation and collaborative learning." - GoOPEN Wiki Vivien Rolfe & Catherine Cronin (2015) LILAC 2017 Josie Fraser @josiefraser

  27. 27. LILAC 2017 Josie Fraser @josiefraser “open can improve access and equity…but it can also exacerbate inequality as we know. Openness is negotiated on an individual basis. So open education practice, as I have found in my own work, is always personal, is always contextual, and its always continuously negotiated. So we can be advocates for openness on an social and institutional level, but still be very cognisant of the risks we may be asking people to take when we are advocating for open.” - Catherine Cronin, OER17 (2017)
  28. 28. LILAC 2017 Josie Fraser @josiefraser "We try to be inclusive but we fail a lot. We need to design for inclusivity, it doesn't just happen” - Maha Bali, #OER17 (2017)

  30. 30. Open keynote Please tweet using #lilac17op or head over to http://goo.gl/dr19a8 Question: In what way(s) do you consider your practice, as a librarian or information professional, open? LILAC 2017 Josie Fraser @josiefraser
  31. 31. Some questions: • Do staff & students understand their own position? • Do staff & students know about OER? • Does the organisation have a policy regarding OER/open licencing? • Do staff & students understand how to find, evaluate, acknowledge and reuse OER? • Do staff and the organisation consider open practice in relation to provision & production?

  33. 33. Open education is the philosophy of ensuring equity and quality of access to education to all, regardless of gender, economic means, location, disability, age, sexuality, race, ethnicity, or religion Open practice is the act of creating and supporting learning experiences and resources that acknowledge contexts of discrimination and inequality Open practice is the enactment of equitable, ethical, and sustainable learning experiences and resources LILAC 2017 Josie Fraser @josiefraser
