Limited Capacity seats available

Open Session Limited to 40 Participants (First-Come, First-In)

Open Textbooks, Open Education, Open Access, Open Pedagogy, Open Data, Open Research - Open is a hot topic in Universities currently. But how can librarians participate in the movement? Or better yet, how can they drive it?

Find out what is happening at trendsetting institutions and their libraries within the Open movement - locally and internationally. Librarians often get mentioned in the same breath as the open education movement, yet some might not know where they actually fit in.

Learn some quick methods you can start using almost immediately after the session. Come away with open strategies that you can use to kick start the movement at your institution, or to enhance the open movement that is already growing in your workplace!
