The "open" movement provides fertile ground for innovation and collaborations that advance research and enrich the learning environment. Through open-source tools and initiatives, students and faculty are reaping the benefits of free-flowing knowledge and data.
Dr. Jason Baird Jackson, folklore professor from Indiana University, will be joined by U Faculty and staff David Ernst, Lucy Fortson, and Doug Armato on a panel moderated by copyright librarian Nancy Sims.
Among the questions they will address are:
- What social dynamics or institutional cultural shifts lead to successful open research partnerships?
- In what ways are open textbooks a potential solution to the issues facing the traditional textbook publishing model?
- What predictions can you make about monographic publishing practices?
- What issues surround the concept of open data?
