Open Access Week :: Athabasca University

The theme for the 2012 Open Access Week is “Set the Default to Open Access”.  

Athabasca University is proud to participate in its fourth international Open Access Week, between October 22-28, 2012 to broaden awareness and understanding of open access. 
This event will be sponsored by the UNESCO/Commonwealth of Learning Chair in Open Educational Resources (OER), Dr. Rory McGreal. 
Athabasca University will present a series of noon hour webcasts exploring major issues and opportunities of Open Access and Open Educational Resources.  Each session will feature an internationally known promoter and developer of open educational resources, research, or ideas.

Personal plug: see http://openaccess.athabascau.ca/events.php#3 for details of the session being given by Terry Anderson, George Siemens and myself on issues of personal control, ownership and disclosure.
