As we move toward an open future, questions arise about how this shift will affect institutions. There are multiple challenges in the realms of policy, advocacy, and technology surrounding open research practice. This course ranges from the conceptual aspects of “openness” to the practicalities of implementing systems to support open endeavors.

Much of the work in the Scholarly Communications space involves advocacy as it applies to the many levels of the institutional hierarchy. In addition, shifts in how research and scholarship happen have meant that institutions must collaborate across traditionally isolated units to provide infrastructure and services needed to support these shifts. This course will give participants an overview of the tools, expertise, and services needed to build an information-rich and responsive university.

There will be five half-day sessions with a mix of lecture and practical work, particularly information gathering and analysis. The emphasis will be on providing frameworks within which information can be gathered and understood rather than on “fact teaching.”
