Open Education: The Moral, Business & Policy Case for OER
25 October 2017 at h18.00 CET (CET Converter)
The Internet, increasingly affordable computing and bandwidth, open licensing, open access journals and open educational resources (OER) provide the foundation for a world in which universal access to education is possible. Governments are supporting this shift with a move toward open policies: requiring public access to publicly funded resources. Dr. Cable Green, Director of Open Education at Creative Commons, will provide an overview of open licensing and OER, and discuss specific examples where faculty, institutions and governments have moved the default on practice, culture and funding from “closed” to “open.”
Dr. Cable Green
Director of Open Education
Cable works with the global open education community to leverage open licensing, open content, and open policies to significantly improve access to quality, affordable, education and research resources so everyone in the world can attain their education goals. He’s a leading advocate for open licensing policies that ensure publicly funded education materials are freely and openly available.
Cable helps lead the global open education movement and is the Director of Open Education at Creative Commons (CC) – a nonprofit organization at the center of an international movement to promote sharing of creativity and knowledge. CC provides the well-known suite of open licenses that have become the global standard used by governments, institutions and individuals across culture, education, and science, to promote sharing, collaboration and innovation. The CC licenses are everywhere—1.3+ billion are in use across 9 million websites—making it easy for anyone to freely access and use open educational resources.

Cable holds a PhD in educational psychology from Ohio State University, and enjoys motorcycling and playing in the mountains with his family.
