The Future of Libraries & OER: Reflections, Connections & Plans Cont'd

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

In this closing panel for the OpenEd Libraries & OER track, veteran OER advocates from the library community will engage the audience in a discussion about the future of libraries and the open education movement. The panel will seek to be as interactive as possible, giving audience members a chance to share their thoughts and experiences relating to OER.

The discussion will address three main themes:

• Reflections on the presentations, ideas and discussions that came up earlier in the day
• How libraries can create and support connections within and between institutions working on OER
• What resources, information and programming would best support the library community’s expanded involvement in the OER movement

Hi! I'm Nicole Allen, Director of Open Education for SPARC and part of the Organizing Committee of OpenCon 2016. My day job is leading SPARC's work on Open Education, including advocating for U.S. federal and state policy, supporting on-campus efforts to advance OER through academic libraries, and international advocacy for open education through the Open Government Partnership. I also help out with organizing OpenCon by coordinating the application and review process, and logistics for attendees. I've been working to advance open education since I graduated university about ten years ago (even before), and have a background in grassroots organizing and policy advocacy.
