WORKSHOP – Creating a new generation of open scholars: advocating open practice through our teaching

This workshop will explore how research libraries can use their unique position as natural curators of knowledge and promoters of open principles to extend the conversation about open scholarship to new audiences through our teaching & learning programmes, with a view to inspiring good practice and adding to the knowledge base on open practice.  

Using examples and exercises taken from the University of Manchester Library’s Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education (PGCertHE) module on Open Knowledge in Higher Education (OKHE), participants will be encouraged to explore the rationale, benefits, challenges and practicalities of extending the principles of open scholarship to their teaching portfolios and to share examples from their own institutions.  

OKHE uses an open approach to course design and delivery in order to encourage a diverse range of University of Manchester staff to consider their personal approach to open practice in the context of their own institution and the Higher Education sector more generally.  Through carefully designed assessment criteria, participants contribute to the online publication associated with the course and thereby add to the knowledge base and the debate.
