Separate or together? Open Research and Open Education
We tend to treat open education and open research as if they are completely separate issues, just as our universities tend to separate the different missions of the institutions, although these missions are delivered by the same people. This seminar will explore the shared agendas of research communication and learning materials development in what has become an increasingly collaborative, multidisciplinary and open online research environment. Could openness become the space in which these two changing environments converge, to the benefit of the effectiveness and relevance and impact of all three of the university missions?
