What can a Librarian, a Philosopher, 2 students and 2 ed-tech/learning designer types do together?  Lots!  Here’s a sample:
  • Develop resources for faculty and students to learn about open - open.ubc.ca (coming soon)
  • Open challenge bank to support faculty development
  • Video interviews to share stories of open practice on campus
  • Open Case Studies on Sustainability (project in process)
  • Teaching with WordPress (experimental cMOOC for faculty development)
Let’s talk about the benefits of serial collaboration and “pack work” - trust, shortcuts, deep conversations (and not-so-deep), online collaboration, etc. - oh yeah, and show some examples of works in progress.
