Event Description

Open Access Week is a global event to raise awareness of in the importance of open access to information and knowledge. It is held during the last full week of October each year; this year, the week runs from October 23rd to 28th.

Every year, AUC Libraries try to raise awareness of the importance of Open Access for research and teaching, through a variety of activities. In keeping with the theme of the Common Reading Program at AUC, this year’s activities will focus on open access to data. Throughout the week, there will be lunchtime talks by key stakeholders on campus to shed light on current data policies and practices at AUC. These talks are free and open to all, but aimed primarily at an audience consisting of faculty and graduate students at AUC.

On a related note, CLT's Maha Bali will be speaking about open pedagogy and open scholarship. Both often entail having an academic (and even students) express themselves in public. While this has many benefits to the self and others, it also raises some important challenges. In this presentation, she discusses some of the challenges, and looks at some specific contexts and cases, and invite participants to reflect.
