My what a couple of weeks it’s been….So much anticipation, trepidation, incredulity, outrage, sorrow….resolve… No, I’m not talking about #OpenLearning17. The course launch last week provided a wonderfully affirming forum for engaging with the forces of enlightenment.  Laura Gogia’s masterful facilitation of a Twitter Journal Club (#TJC17) on Friday brought folks together around a close […]

I've been intrigued by the idea of open educational resources for a while now. Since I'll likely be switching to an open-access textbook as part of this process, I'd like to learn more about the open educational movement in general.
