15 March
Seminar by Gwenda Thomas (Executive Director, UCT libraries) Open education: the strategic role of the UCT Libraries
Managing and making scholarly content accessible and visible involves almost every part of the university and requires core services and skills to support and sustain this growing community.  Some of these are presently being undertaken by the Centre for Educational Technology and OpenUCT, some through ICTS by the Research Portal and Enterprise Content Management projects, some through the Research Office and in faculties.  Given that one of the strategic goals and priority of the university to achieve greater impact, increased visibility and generate engagement by making its scholarly content discoverable, there is growing recognition for an institutional strategy that gives direction and systematic support for the core aspects of the work and can support a growing community at UCT that is active in creating scholarly content.  Whereas previously, the Libraries have had a low profile in the sharing, curating, publishing, visibility and dissemination of UCT's scholarly output, it is critical that the UCT Libraries assume their role in the open scholarship agenda of the institution.  The presentation will reflect on one of the Libraries' strategic goals for 2013-2015 which is to define and establish a leadership role in open scholarship, with specific focus on open education resources, across the campus.

Time and Venue: 1-2pm, Mafeje Room, Bremner Building
