Librarycamp and OpenCPD at FLOSSIE 2013

  1. 1. LIBRARYCAMP & OPENCPD PENNY CS ANDREWS @pennyb
  2. 2. WHAT ARE LIBRARYCAMPS? • Unconferences for anyone interested in improving libraries • Audience-led, no agenda • Anything can be said, anyone can have a say • The people who are there are the people who should be there • Questions are as valid as expertise
  3. 3. WHY IS LIBRARYCAMP IMPORTANT • Open to all • Horizontal • Crosses sectors learning & CPD hierarchies and • Exposes people regardless of income to new ideas • Lots of cake
  4. 4. WHAT IS OPENCPD • Taking Librarycamp to people who can’t attend • Extending conversations had at camp • Sharing big questions and best practice • A dirty great MOOC • A set of Open Educational Resources
  5. 5. WHY DO LIBRARIANS NEED OPENCPD • Only senior library staff and those who win bursaries can attend conferences & external training • Big events often share old news • Best bit of conferences & Libcamps is conversation
  6. 6. JARGON CHECKER MOOC is a Massively Open Online Course. Most popular MOOCs sadly are not that open - open to all but not run on FOSS software and the content is often copyrighted and not distributed outside the course. •A • An Open Educational Resource (OER) is a digital resource that can be freely used, re-used, developed and re-purposed for teaching, learning and research.
  7. 7. WHY IS OPENCPD OERS? WHY IS IT A MOOC? • I believe in Open culture, so it makes no sense to make something and hide it. • It’s more sustainable and relevant if people extend and develop the resource to suit their needs and changes in the profession. Fork it! • Internal and external trainers and Masters courses can use the materials. Why re-invent the wheel? • Some people like to follow a course in a defined timeperiod and be awarded certificates and badges. • We can offer more support.
  8. 8. PAST MOOCS IN LIBRARYWORLD • New Librarianship MOOC run by R.David Lankes of Syracuse University’s School • Both • Hyperlinked • Hierarchical Library MOOC - run by San Jose State University School of Library and Information Science run by universities, advertising their librarianship courses & publications - bring in the “experts” to show the way • No opportunities for students to lead
  9. 9. POSSIBLE PLATFORMS & PROBLEMS • Coursesites by Blackboard is easy to use, but ugly and proprietary • WordPress with Buddypress is no fun for learners, unwieldy to look at but easy to add content • No access to mainstream platforms like Coursera • OpenMOOC & Google options require coding skills and patience - hard to pass on/sustain • Moodle • Or could be the answer build something new?
  10. 10. MY OTHER QUESTIONS • How connectivist should we be? Some MOOCs overwhelm in their content generation, but closer to Librarycamp ethos for everyone to be a “node” • How offer? much support can we • Will bringing pedagogy in just reinforce a hierarchy? • Could this scale to other professions? IT, artists, teachers? • Who wants in?
  11. 11. QUESTIONS! •Ask now! •Or email pennyb@gmail.com •Or tweet @pennyb All photos by Librarycamp, except the kitten. Kitten: Sasan Geranmehr via Wikimedia Commons
