Engaging Students & Other Campus Constituencies as OER Advocates

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

College students are a powerful but often overlooked ally in the open education movement. As the primary beneficiaries of OER, students are uniquely positioned to be effective advocates to instructors, colleges and policy makers. However, students often understand openness differently than members of the community do, and may value it for different reasons.

In this session, the directors of two student efforts for open education and open access will share exclusive insight into the student perspective on openness, examples of what students from across the globe are doing to have an impact, and to begin engaging students in open education efforts.

The session will also include advice for engaging librarians and faculty members in OER advocacy, and tips for using the principles of grassroots organizing to build a movement on campus.
