Feb. 11, 2019 - Teaching and Learning Innovations is pleased to host the inaugural openCI Speaker Series this semester, featuring presentations and discussions on the Open Educational Resources (OER) movement, open science practices, Allies for Education, and the changing scholarly communication market.

The series will kick off on Wednesday, Feb. 20 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. in the Grand Salon with Hal Plotkin. He will share from both his personal and professional experience about the history of Creative Commons and the ethical implications of no-cost course materials in higher education.
