    Staff and Faculty Event: Clavius Seminar Open Revolution Meeting

    February 16, 2021

    University faculty and staff are invited to a special meeting of the Clavius Seminar Open Revolution on Monday, Feb. 22 from 12-1 p.m. that will feature a presentation by guest speaker Jasmine Roberts, titled “Open Education at the Center and Margins of Social Justice.”

    claviusevent.jpgOpen education is commonly known for the advocacy of OERs (open educational resources), consequently framing the discourse as a textbook issue.  However, there is an increasing need to consider the intersections between social justice, inclusion, equity, and open education. Roberts’ talk will address the urgency of centering social justice approaches in open educational practices and the challenges of this process, and provide recommendations for attendees to apply to their context.

    Jasmine Roberts is a lecturer in the School of Communication at the Ohio State University, where she teaches in the areas of public relations writing, digital activism and campaign strategy. Roberts’ advocacy work centers on the experiences of people of color, women and queer communities. Along with her communication expertise, Roberts is also a renowned open education leader. She has delivered numerous keynote presentations across the country on the topics of inclusion in open education. She is the author of the highly-rated, openly-licensed book "Writing for Strategic Communication Industries".

     Faculty and staff can register here.
