The LACUNY Scholarly Communications Roundtable held an event on the “Labor of Open” on April 19th at the CUNY School of Journalism. About 50 CUNY librarians attended.
We were fortunate to have Audrey Watters speak to us first to encourage us to think critically about the nature of “open.”
The transcript of her talk is here: http://hackeducation.com/2018/05/04/cuny-labor-open
After Audrey’s talk, we broke into small conversation groups to discuss the relationship between librarians’ work on the Open Education Resources initiative and their other work.
Ideas from our conversations will be shared with CUNY librarians.
