Please join us for the next Openness Meetup


According to the recent Education Innovation Small Grant announcement, UW-Madison has started crafting a strategy to support the development and use of high-quality Open Education Resources.

Let’s talk about our experiences with developing and using OERs and how we might support campus efforts. If you have a particular tool, experience, or effort you’d like to share or question you’d like to raise, please reply to this email so we can be sure to incorporate it into the meetup.

Join our community on Thursday, October 15 from noon-1:30 pm to share information, interests, and energy around “openness” and the academy.  We meet every third Thursday at 12:30 in the Wisconsin Idea Room room 159 Education Building for community building and information sharing.

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.

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