Faculty Council Town Hall on Open Access

Are you Open-Minded about Open Access?

Where: Ground floor of the library

When: November 19th, 12noon – 1:30pm

The entire OISE community is welcome to attend (light lunch/refreshments to be provided)

What would an Open Access mandate mean to you?

This Faculty Council-hosted Town Hall will begin with a panel discussion featuring faculty and student participants from across campus. The Q & A will follow in which broad open access issues will be discussed, as well as the implications of a faculty mandate supporting open access. Harvard School of Education and Stanford School of Education both have open access mandates. Should OISE be the first Canadian Faculty of Education to mandate open access? Come and join the discussion and share your thoughts.
