Open Sketching: Connecting Contexts and Increasing Awareness on openness

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In 2016 TU Delft started a university wide Open Science program, aiming to provide an umbrella for open education, open research, open data, open access publications and open source software. In many, perhaps most cases, the people involved for each of these contexts is or could be the same: scientists/teachers at our university. The foundations in which these contexts are based is the same (i.e. a culture of sharing, building upon the efforts and outputs of others).

Still we see that each context is approached separately. Various aspects are only utilized or tackled within its specific context (among others: tools and methods used, opportunities and challenges experienced, lessons learned, output produced and required support). Even though we believe translations of these aspects to other open contexts can be beneficial to people and add to the further development of an open culture in our university, they are somehow not easily transferred to other contexts.

In 2017 we initiated activities to increase awareness on openness and support the development of a more open culture (results of these activities can be viewed at http://opensketching.weblog.tudelft.nl) and http://www.open.tudelft.nl/year-of-open/calendar/)

Based on the results of these context specific activities we took a second step to get to practical suggestions on how to translate the aspects mentioned to other contexts.

At OE Global, within the theme ‘open connections’ we would like to offer an interactive poster session to
demonstrate the results of the activities we organised in 2017, share conclusions based on these activities;
and challenge OE Global participants to build forth on our conclusions.

This way we aim to inspire OE Global participants about approaches to increase awareness of openness independant of the context it is applied to, and contribute to active discussions during the OE Global 2018 conference on the topic of open connections
