#yearofopen at The Open University


Celebrate #YearOfOpen at The Open University

2017 is #YearOfOpen … a 365 day celebration of open education and the anniversary of a number of key milestones in its development, including the Cape Town Declaration, 15 years since the Budapest Open Access Initiative, and the 5th anniversary of the Paris OER Declaration. In addition to all the excellent events happening around the world, the OER Hub team will host a Year of Open event here at The Open University, UK (OU) on Tuesday 20 June 2017!

Join us as we celebrate openness at the OU with a series of lightening presentations from colleagues across the university, exploring what openness means to them and their roles. Speakers include:

  • Openness and the OU Library: How the Library is Supporting Openness at the OU (Nicola Dowson, Library Senior Manager (Research Support) and Dan Crane, Research Support Librarian)
  • Opening Educational Practice beyond the OU: Open Platform and Practices (Anna Page, Senior Producer: Open Education Projects)
  • From Theory to Practice: An Open Educational Journey (Tim Seal, TESS-India Technical Director)
  • Ethics in Knowing: Rationales for Openness (Rick Holliman, Professor of Engaged Research)
