Open Access & Open Educational Resources: UML Supporting Equitable Teaching & Learning (2020 Faculty Showcase)
From Gemma Henderson
Dr. Cameron Riopelle, Head of Data Services at UM Libraries; Prof. Joy M. Doan, Head of Austin Weeks Music Library & Librarian Associate Professor; Ava Brillat, Librarian Associate Professor, UM Libraries
- The theme of International Open Access (OA) week is Taking Action to Build Structural Equity and Inclusion, which focuses on, "structural racism, discrimination, and exclusion are present and persistent in places where openness is a core value." Cameron Riopelle will provide an overview of UMiami activities during OA week, October 19 - 26.
- What does OA mean? What are our preconceived notions of OA? How has OA broadened? The field of OA goes beyond the sciences to the humanities and social sciences. It's more than predatory journals. Joy M. Doan will discuss how OA has changed to be more inclusive and involves diversity of thought and disciplines.
- How is UML, and by extension UMiami, implementing practical applications of OA? Who are the people involved (e.g, campus IT, Academic Technologies), and how do we bring these resources to students and faculty for classroom engagement. During the pandemic, we have developed practical applications that are pedagogically equitable (i.e., OA, OER). Ava Brillat will provide a holistic view of the application of OA/OER in the classroom to support teaching and learning.
