  15. 15. An Open “Textbook” Can Be: • Interactive • Collaborative • Dialogic • Dynamic • Empowering • Contributory • Current • Accessible • Multimedia • Public • (Free)
  16. 16. Open Education • Open Educational Resources (OER) • Open Pedagogy • Open Access to research
  17. 17. Open Pedagogy • Improves access to education. • Treats education as a learner-driven process. • Stresses community and collaboration over content. • Connects the university to the wider public.
  18. 18. Access • Save money on textbooks, ok • But what other barriers exist to access? • Digital divide • Universal design • Trolling, violence CCBY Jonathan Brodsky https://flic.kr/p/37z2C2

  26. 26. What Will the Digital Age Enable? Technology allows for efficient worldwide dissemination of research and scholarship. But closed distribution models can get in the way. Open access helps to fulfill the promise of the digital age. ~Jennifer Jenkins, Duke University Drawing: CC BY SA http://fav.me/d54zn82
  27. 27. CC BY 3.0 US: http://legacy.earlham.edu/~peters/fos/overview.htm We Can Do It! “We can be confident that OA journals are economically sustainable because the true costs of peer review, manuscript preparation, and OA dissemination are considerably lower than the prices we currently pay for subscription-based journals. There's more than enough money already committed to the journal-support system. Moreover, as OA spreads, libraries will realize large savings from the conversion, cancellation, or demise of non-OA journals.” ~Peter Suber

  31. 31. My evening • Barriers to open • Contingent labor and OER • Privilege and dominance in open spaces • Screenshotting tweets • Embedding tweets • Exploiting tweeters • Slideshares and articles • Conferences • Skype dates • Plans for meetups • Sharing faculty observation protocols • Not • Making • Powerpoint
  32. 32. OPEN (un)bound(ing) • Challenge barriers to access. Be honest and critical. • Center learners. Be radical and real. • Facilitate connection. Be a sticky node, not a gate. • Share research. Be generous and just. CCBYSAAntonlobohttp://bit.ly/24g4ZjO
  33. 33. Open is a practice, not a panacea.
