This semester I am continuing my OPEN journey by participating in The University of British Columbia’s (UBC) Program for Open Scholarship and Education (POSE). Through this program I plan to expand my knowledge of OPEN scholarship.
On Wednesday 100+ participants came to the kick-off and we even enjoyed a break-out room activity. The participants in my break-out room activity are from varying backgrounds such as library services, research, and public health. It was interesting to learn the reasons that brought us all to this course.
According to the website the program should take about 3 – 5 hours each month. Yesterday, I started my course readings and due to exploration of many deeper learning readings, I may have already already spent close to three hours. As I excitedly shared what I was reading with my partner (he nodded appropriately but not enthusiastically) about the structure and history of publishing I have more questions than answers.
Down the path I go.
