Want to learn more about how academic communities can push back against paywalled knowledge in various genres, including books, journals, research-creation materials, datasets, software, dissertations, and more? Want to learn more about how the right to share and access data, information, and knowledge equitably can benefit our research and educational environments? What does cross-platform use mean or look like for innovation in higher education?
This event offers a series of show-and-tell demonstrations of Concordia-led innovation and work-in-progress on community-driven open initiatives, followed by a lively discussion. Participants will have the chance to explore a range of open genres and platforms (i.e.: Manifold for book publishing, Pressbooks for open textbooks, Spectrum for open-access articles and more, Dataverse for data, blogs, and more). We will look at open scholarship and educational content alongside the potential for cross-platform use to reach multiple audiences.
