AIDE Presents: Open Access Week OER @ BHCC

Open Access Week 2020. Open with Purpose: Taking Action to Build Structural Equity and Inclusion. October 19-25.

We are celebrating Open Access Week at BHCC to help spread the word that, not only are there Open Educational Resources, like textbooks and content, but there are also peer-reviewed journals that are open and free. Over this week we will be giving people a chance to see what OER and Open Access Journals are all about.

Open Access Week was created by SPARC, an Open Education Global advocacy group, that supports Open Education, Open Access, and Open Data.

International Open Access Week, a global event now entering its thirteenth year, is an opportunity for open access advocates to engage their communities to teach them about the potential benefits of Open Access, to share what they’ve learned with colleagues, and to help inspire wider participation in helping to make Open Access a new norm in scholarship and research.

Started in 2007 as Open Access Day, the event was originally a partnership between SPARC and students who organized local events on a handful of campuses across the United States. Since then, International Open Access Week has grown exponentially and is now celebrated through hundreds of events around the world.

The great part of Open Access and OER is that everyone can get involved; students, faculty, staff, and administrators. Our goal for the week is to reach as many people as possible to let them know about Open Access and OER. Faculty can request to have their course listed as OER by completing this google form. If you would like any more information about OER: please reach out to Ceit De Vitto, Senior Special Programs Coordinator/Digital Learning/OER @ kmdevitt@bhcc.edu.
