Description

This project is intended to bring collaborators together to create a new infographic that presents the intersections of various Open movements and applies them to the daily lives of college students. The project supports the "connecting with other open movements" and "empowering the next generation" priorities discussed in Cape Town Open Education Declaration +10: http://www.capetowndeclaration.org/cpt10/

This resource is inspired by the Association of Research Libraries’ “Fair Use in a Day in the Life of a College Student” infographic: http://www.arl.org/focus-areas/copyright-ip/fair-use/3831-fair-use-in-a-day-in-the-life-of-a-college-student-infographic

The resulting resource will be shared with a CC-BY license, and the participation of all contributors will be acknowledged.

What are we working on during the do-a-thon? What kinds of support do we need?

Michelle Reed, the project lead, is attending remotely and will join the Do-a-Thon online between 13:00 and 17:00 (6 a.m. – 10 a.m. CST).

The primary goal for do-a-thon day is to identify collaborators. Beyond that, we will brainstorm the intersections of various Open movements, discuss the impact of Open on students (undergraduates in particular), write copy, begin the layout and design process, and discuss OER distribution options.

Work on the project will continue after the do-a-thon with an expected completion date of February 16, 2018 (if not sooner). Do-a-thon participants may elect to limit their participation to the hours of the do-a-thon, though continued participation on the project is encouraged. Remote participation is also encouraged, and contributors are welcome to join at any time.

How can others contribute?

This is a remote project. We'll begin the discussion here following the 13:00 do-a-thon update for in-person participants. As a group, we will determine if there is a need to move the conversation outside the GitHub space. I will also post updates on Twitter at https://twitter.com/LibrariansReed using the hash tag #openinthelife

Email will not be used during the do-a-thon, though it may be the primary means of communication in the long term.

This post is part of the OpenCon 2017 Do-A-Thon. Not sure what's going on? Head here.

Hello OpenCon, and thanks for your interest in contributing to this project. We'll begin brainstorming by responding to a series of questions, which I will post here and on Twitter. To start, let's reflect on our own experiences. Which of the Open movements (Open Access, Open Data, Open Education, Open Science, Open Source, other...) does your work connect most fully to?

Q3: What values do you consider to be foundational for the Open movement you identified in question 1 (that which most embodies your work)? Why are these values important for the community?

Q5: In what ways are you impacted by Open in your day-to-day activities? What open tools do you use? Where do you share your work? How do you discover/consume/engage with the work of others? What are some of the indirect benefits of Open in your daily life?

Q7: Which of these tools/activities/practices/values/beliefs also extend to students? Does Open offer benefits that are unique to students? How are concerns/risk similar? How are they different?

My day is just getting started here on the West coast of N. America...I started writing my answers here but then they got long, so I transferred to a blog post: http://blogs.ubc.ca/chendricks/2017/11/13/open-in-the-life-student-questions/
