For UC San Diego researchers and citizen scientists interested in collecting, curating, preserving, and communicating the data you produce – contact the UC San Diego Library Scholarly Communications and Research Data Curation Program.
What was going to be an in-person workshop co-sponsored by the UC San Diego Library and the Teaching and Learning Commons on campus June 3, 2020 at 10:00am has now been moved online, like just about everything else. We will be sending out a link to register or contact us for access to the virtual classroom.
This workshop is even more important as we anticipate that we will remain in distance learning mode until at least the fall, and want to do all we can to ensure continuity of access and affordability for our students.
While many of the benefits of using openly licensed materials remain constant, their importance is amplified as students are facing increased bandwidth and financial obstacles.
Benefits of Open Educational Resources (OER):
Immediate and sustained access. Students, faculty, and researchers are dispersed across the globe. OER do not require VPN or subscription access. Students will have access at the start of their course and well beyond for future reference.
Free to use. OER can be read, adapted, modified, and shared at no cost to the reader. Freedom from financial burdens are especially important and appreciated during this time of economic instability.
Adaptability. Many instructors are faced with loss of access, for a variety of reasons, to their teaching materials as we’ve had to rapidly shift to online teaching. Quality educational materials can be adapted to fit your needs if they are openly licensed.
Workshop instructors: Allegra Swift, Dominique Turnbow, and Laura Schwartz. UC San Diego Library.
Join an existing session even or propose a new one even as the event is ongoing. Looking forward to learning from the international #OpenPublish community!
Open Publishing Fest celebrates communities developing open creative, scholarly, technological, and civic publishing projects. Together, we find new ground to share our ideas.
This is at once a collaborative and distributed event. Sessions are hosted by individuals and organizations around the world as panel discussions, fireside chats, demonstrations, and performances. We connect those points to bring them in conversation with one another and map out what’s next.
We seek to build networks of resilience and care for people working on new ways to develop and share knowledge.
Join us by proposing a session. Proposals will be considered on a rolling basis up to and throughout the fest.
