Open Education: The Business and Policy Case for OER

The Internet, increasingly affordable computing, open licensing, open access journals and open educational resources provide the foundation for a world in which a quality education can be a basic human right. Yet before we break the "iron triangle" of access, cost and quality with new models, we need to develop sustainable open business models with open policies: public access to publicly funded resources. Dr. Cable Green, Director of Global Learning at Creative Commons, will discuss specific examples where institution, provinces / states and nations have built effective business cases for OER. He will also explore how to build effective teams for institution / system-wide OER projects in a way that both builds high quality OER and takes your institutions through the cultural shift to open.

Learning Objectives

  1. Should governments, foundations and other funding entities require their grantees to openly license what they build?
  2. What is the OER opportunity with Common Core? What if we build an Open Common Core and put an open licnese on all Math and ELA curriculum?
  3. How can you join the open education movement and begin to openly licnese your works so everyone can access high quality learning resources?
