David Wiley, a professor at Brigham Young University’s School of Education, will lead a lecture about open educational resources in Room 101 of the Miller Learning Center at 3:30 p.m. on March 26. The lecture is titled “Open: Decreasing Costs, Improving Access and Increasing Quality of Education.”
Open educational resources are teaching, learning and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an open copyright license.
Wiley will talk about some of his own experiences with some of these initiatives through an organization he runs in Utah called Lumen.
The lecture, part of the Center for Teaching and Learning’s 2013 spring speaker series, is open free to the public. A reception will follow at 4:30 p.m.
