We’re super excited to see folks at Open Ed in Niagara Falls next week! We’re presenting on our LIS OER project twice, both on Friday.
- Josh is presenting a lightning talk about our engagements to date with LIS faculty, “What do MLIS Faculty Know about OER?” at 11:45 in the Governor’s Amphitheater. See full description on the schedule.
- After lunch, Maria, Will, and Josh are hosting a symposium from 1:30 – 2:30 in Cascade 1, “OER is for Everyone!: Granularity as an Approach to Scaling OER Creation through Open Canvas.” We’re planning to use a simple tool called Open Canvas to design learning objects that share your unique knowledge, skills, and abilities in our session, so if making stuff sounds fun, join us! Full description on the schedule.
We also have an incredible piece of news to share, which Josh teased on Twitter:
Got some amazing news today. Like maybe best since getting this job that I love, working with and for people I admire and respect, on issues I care about. Can’t (but must) wait to share. #StayTuned

Can’t wait to high five everyone for all the great things you’re doing! If you’re interested in this work but we haven’t met, please introduce yourself!
