Keynote speaker David Wiley presented a provocative address: "Reclaiming Open: The Many Benefits of TrulyOpen Education." And, he gets points for quoting Whitman and his attention to other animals [not] "demented with the mania of owning things." Wiley made a strong argument for librarians and instructional designers partnering to highlight the need and facilitate the use of open educational resources.
The SUNY Librarians Association takes us to the University at Albany next June 11th.
