Session Title: Working at the intersection of open research and open education
Open education and open research are often discussed in separate forums as distinct concepts and activities. However, since faculty members are often both educators and researchers, these areas of open scholarship often overlap and have many principles in common. I will discuss these common principles, as well as projects I am currently working on that combine both open education and open research. I will discuss how this intersection can be especially important when working with undergraduate students in low income environments.
