Open Education: The Moral, Business & Policy Case for OER
The Internet, increasingly affordable computing, open licensing, open access journals and open educational resources provide the foundation for a world in which a quality education can be a basic human right. Yet before we break the “iron triangle” of access, cost and quality with new models, we need to develop sustainable open business models with open policies: public access to publicly funded resources. Dr. Cable Green, Director of Global Learning at Creative Commons, will discuss specific examples where institution, provinces / states and nations have built effective business cases for OER. He will also explore how to build effective teams for institution / system-wide OER projects in a way that both builds high quality OER and takes your institutions through the cultural shift to open.
Keynote Session: Open Education: The Moral, Business and Policy Case for Open Educational Resources , Wednesday, March 4th, 1:30 pm, Salem Campus, Building 6/Auditorium.
