Last week, I had the opportunity to share it with a small group, and it worked really well in terms of focusing the discussion and talking … <a href="https://upstreamdownstreamblog.wordpress.com/2017/03/17/reflections-on-generosity-of-spirit-barriers-to-working-in-the-open/">Continue reading <span>Reflections on Generosity of Spirit: Barriers to working in the open</span></a><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=upstreamdownstreamblog.wordpress.com&blog=120635449&post=552&subd=upstreamdownstreamblog&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1">

Imagining organizing (!yes, I think crazy thoughts on bike rides) the Urbana-Champaign node of OER innovations.  The technology and its […]<img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=resourceroomblog.wordpress.com&blog=12735171&post=11257&subd=resourceroomblog&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1">
