Satellite events are held year round, open to anyone, and arranged by hosts around the world in partnership with the main OpenCon conference. Over 4000 people have attended OpenCon satellite events since 2014. Satellites often combine content, themes and ideas from the main meeting with locally arranged activities. They're the perfect way to learn and get involved in the community, and are an essential part of the OpenCon community.
Are you a student wanting more affordable textbooks? A librarian seeking more information on Open Access, Open Education, and Open Data? Are you a professor curious about open research and interested in supporting more affordable textbooks for your students? Then OpenCon Boulder is for you!
This full day event will include a keynote from Dr. Bethany Wiggin, co-founder of DataRefuge, an open access panel, and a training session on advocating for Open Educational Resources on your campus.
Bethany Wiggin is the Founding Director of the Penn Program in Environmental Humanities and is an Associate Professor of German at the University of Pennsylvania. Her scholarship explores histories of migration, ecology, language and cultural translation since the Columbian exchange on both sides of the Atlantic world. She aims to engage audiences beyond the academy to participate in making knowledge to connect the arts and sciences.
Join us on September 7 at University of Colorado Boulder to learn, advocate, and lead for open research and more affordable textbooks!
