With support from our lead partner, LibreTexts, the AggieOpen program will collaborate with departments and programs across the UC Davis campus to feature internal and external speakers in an Open Education Invited Speaker Series. Each Open Education Week, the AggieOpen team will bring distinguished educators to share their research and work promoting a more equitable educational experience for students in higher education through the use of openly licensed learning materials.

Topics will address important issues in Open Education and offer speakers the opportunity to share their research with a broad audience.

2023 Invited Speaker 

The UC Davis Library’s AggieOpen program is thrilled to host Professor Jasmine Roberts-Crews as our first invited speaker for 2023. Professor Roberts-Crews will present “A Call for Reparative Justice in Open Education Labor” on Tuesday, March 7, 2023 via Zoom.

This talk discusses the intersections between race, gender, and labor in open education. Using a Black feminist lens, the talk urgently calls for reparative justice in open education labor. The audience will understand how to reclaim justice in open education labor through equitable practices, communal care, and rest.
