Open Research and Learning: Collaboration, Connections & Communities
Monday, April 30, 2012 • 2:00-4:00 p.m.
Cowles Auditorium, Humphrey School of Public Affairs

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 ErnstLucy 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?

This is one of the most efficient ways to learn something - in the library students practice more active style of learning, which is very efficient!Office
