Copyright law is, for good or for ill, now a part of the academic experience. Learning about copyright and alternative models of distribution, such as Creative Commons and Open Access, is an important piece of effectively navigating the waters of the new educational reality.
The third annual eCornucopia conference at Oakland University will examine specific examples about how openness is implemented in higher education and the importance of increasing the transparency and accessibility of knowledge. With tracks focusing on Open Education (open educational resources), Open Access (library journals), and Open Source (open computer code and ramifications), the eCornucopia conference has a wealth of informative and exciting information for scholars and professionals looking to better understand the future of the university.
The eCornucopia conference, which will be held Thursday, May 26th from 8-5, will bring together speakers to explore the future of the open digital university. The Copyright Office of MPublishing is happy to announce that Greg Grossmeier and Bobby Glushko will be presenting on the Open Access track. Registration for this event is now available; deadline is May 19th.
