Higher Ed Responsibility: Using and Supporting OS at Colleges & Universities
Open to educators and OS community members, this will be a constructive conversation about the role of higher education in OS communities and best practices for sustainable future relationships. We will look at existing OS efforts in academia, and explore how to enable wider collaboration. The conversation will be facilitated by the Clinic for Open Source Arts (COSA) and the Center for Research in Open Source Software (CROSS).
How are higher education institutions engaging with OS ideas, and tools?
What is their role currently and what could/should it be?
How is academia perceived by the OS community? What barriers impact collaboration?
Can educational institutions become more central to open source sustainability?
What needs to change in the ways we define research to encourage contribution to OS projects?
How do we better define the process of educational institutions as part of the pipeline of OS users and contributors?
