According to the FBI, hate crimes have been on the rise at K-12 and college campuses across the country since 2015.

Description:
“Today, the most significant challenges to realizing the full potential of the Internet lies in our ability to advance the Open Agenda (Open Access, Open Data, and Open Education) for the benefit of practitioners, investors, and the public at large” (SPARC). The Open Agenda is predicated on the belief that the world is better when we share and work together. Using the Open Agenda, we can strive to break some of the structural barriers that maintain inequity in higher education. This session will explore the Open Agenda and demonstrate how its goals are related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Attendees will also learn how to become involved and how to incorporate tenets of the Open Agenda into their research practices and classrooms.
Goals and Target Audience:
Goals/learning objectives: At the end of this presentation, attendees will: 1. Understand what the Open Agenda is (Open Access (OA), Open Educational Resources (OER), and Open Data) 2. Why removing or reducing cost barriers is important for diversity, equity, and inclusion 3. Identify things they can do to support the Open Agenda, such as publishing OA articles, adopting OER, and sharing research data. Target audience: This session will be of interest to researchers, faculty, graduate teaching assistants, and graduate students who are doing (or plan to do) research, teaching, publishing, and have authority to select course material.
