Keynote: “I’m excited but have no idea what I’m doing”: How Libraries Can Support Open Pedagogy and Why They Should
-Janet Swatscheno from University of Illinois at Chicago

Academic libraries recognize that the increasing cost of course materials is a problem for students, especially students who already rely on grants and student loans to afford college. For more than a decade, libraries have attempted to help alleviate the cost of course materials by purchasing reference copies of textbooks, encouraging faculty to assign library licensed material, and supporting open educational resources. Many libraries have focused on supporting the adoption, adaptation, and creation of open educational resources. With the growth and evolution of the open education community, it has become apparent that the benefits of OER extend beyond saving students money. Many OER organizations are shifting their focus to open pedagogy. For the same reasons libraries are well situated to support OER, libraries are also well situated to support open pedagogy. In this keynote, participants will gain a basic understanding of open pedagogy and how academic librarians can both support and participate in open educational practices.

CARLI is pleased to offer a 3-week synchronous and asynchronous course on open educational resources. This virtual course includes material that was first shared with the CARLI membership during the Open Textbook Network Train-the-Trainer workshops in Spring 2018.

This course will be offered May 2022 with the live sessions on May 17, 24, and 31 from 11:00 am - 12:30pm. Attendees should plan to attend each live session.

The live sessions will include some presentations, but the aim of the course planners is that these will incorporate a flipped classroom model to build community among participants as all share and discuss the topics.

Technology used for live sessions: Zoom, ideally participants will be able to use video as well as audio.

Registration: More information on this course and instructions for registering can be found here.

If you have any questions, please send them to CARLI Support.

OER adoption requires more than the work of librarians. Collaboration is essential to have a long-term impact as well as weather the storms of turnover, a global pandemic, and piecemeal funding. Panelists will share practical advice on how to identify stakeholders, prioritize student success, and get buy-in from university administration. They will also cover the work of a task force in the UNC System that involves librarians, instructional designers, and university admin to streamline access to open educational resources. 

Panelists will include: 
- Sarah Falls, University Librarian at UNC School of the Arts
- Harvey Long, Student Success Librarian at North Carolina A&T University
- Melody Rood, Student Success Librarian at UNC-Greensboro
- Jeanne Hoover, Scholarly Communication Librarian at East Carolina University"

The Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community is culturally and linguistically diverse but is often racialized to be a homogenous group of “model minorities.” The model minority myth has been used as a political tool to exploit AAPIs while further oppressing other communities of color. Members of the AAPI community are often positioned at the contentious intersection between invisibility and hyper visibility, between being the assimilated model minority and the perpetual foreigner. This workshop will examine the creation of the Asian American identity, explore the history of Asian American racialization, and make critical connections between this history and the present positioning of Asians and Pacific Islanders within the United States. This workshop will provide the context necessary for strategies on creating more inclusive, equitable, and liberatory spaces for AAPIs in institutions and communities.

Shengxiao Yu, often known by her nickname Sole, is a speaker, facilitator, writer, and social justice educator. She is the creator of Nectar, a space for life-affirming experiences for liberation. Sole combines her storytelling and facilitation experiences to ground her social justice education practice in abolitionist and transformative justice principles. Sole has lived in Latin America and worked with grassroots communities and NGOs in Peru and Costa Rica. She has been an advocate for immigrant rights through providing legal services to unaccompanied immigrant children from Central America, Asia, and beyond. As a generation 1.5 Asian American, Sole is also working to build community among her fellow Asian Americans in order to increase socio-political power and to lift up her lineage. Sole is inspired by BIPOC activists, grassroots community leaders, and all the intersectional movement ancestors who have paved the way.

As libraries and publishers continue to navigate the Open Access movement, the need for inclusive content and research, budgetary constraints, and varying purchasing/licensing models, there have been increasing obstacles on the path to ensuring all needs are being met in library-publisher collaborations. This presentation will feature current library and publisher perspectives to determine how these entities can work together toward flexible and sustainable solutions within the context of direct library-publisher collaborations, featuring librarians from Auburn University, Clemson University, University of Central Florida, and University of Kentucky. This will also provide insight into independent publishers’ challenges specifically and how to mitigate limiting and misjudging of content that is coming from truly diversified researchers and the outlets that produce this research. Issues to address include mislabeling publishers and content across the industry, how this occurs, the industry standards of vetting quality research, DEIA across the industry, and developing truly transformative OA models and initiatives.
