GPLL265 - Make it open: Simple steps to make your work accessible, equitable, and discoverable

This workshop introduces the “open” movement and its relevance and applicability to graduate students. Participants will learn definitions and examples of openly licensed materials that could be used in classroom, research, and public contexts. The workshop culminates in a guided activity in which students will go through each step of creating an open educational resource (OER). Along the way, students will explore the important factors, tools, and standards to consider in the process of producing resources that are accessible, equitable, and discoverable.

Learning Objectives


By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
1) explain at least one way to incorporate open principles into one’s graduate career
2) create, adapt, and share content using an open license
3) navigate best practices around accessibility standards (especially in a digital context)
4) apply these skills to knowledge promotion and public scholarship
