The third annual conference at Oakland University will examine specific examples about how openness is implemented in higher education and the importance of increasing the transparency and accessibility of knowledge. We will offer three tracks, Open Education (open educational resources), Open Access (library journals) and Open Source (open computer code and ramifications) , to further explore this topic as it relates to faculty, librarians and instructional technologists respectively.
Our keynote speaker is Ray Schroeder, Professor Emeritus of Communication, and founding director of the Center for Online Learning, Research, and Service at the University of Illinois at Springfield. He will speak about The Open Future of Higher Education.
