Third Thursday Openness Meetup


Thursday, June 18
12:30-1:30 pm
Wisconsin Idea Room – Rm 159, Education Bldg (on Bascom Mall)

Feel free to bring your lunch. We’ll provide some treats!

The topic:

Open access, open data, open educational resources . . . Information and programs related to these topics seem to be cropping up all over campus. Time to start a community to share information, interests, and energy around “openness” and the academy. We’ll continue to meet every third Thursday at 12:30 for community building and information sharing.

What we’ll do:
As the community develops, we can add some topics or structure to our meetups, but for this month, we’d like to focus on getting to know a bit about each other and the activities we’re involved with. If there’s value in developing a shared space online or an email list to collect or share information between meetups we might organize that this month too.

Who should come:
Anyone with any interest in how or why we might collect, share, and access information in ways that make it easier for more people to use that information in more ways. No need for specialized knowledge or experience.

We hope to see you there!
