Join us at the 2019 Colorado Open Scholars Summit @ DU for a discussion on Openness in Tenure and Promotion!

The 2019 Summit is a forum for regional and international discussion on Open Access and Open Educational Resources as related to Tenure and Promotion. This year features two virtual panel discussions from scholars across the U.S. and Canada. Following the panels, nine university campus locations will host local discussion groups, with ideas from these discussions then shared across campuses. Online discussion will be available to virtual attendees.

Research Realities in Tenure & Promotion
A panel discussion on general challenges within the Tenure & Promotion process, with particular attention paid to the evaluation of scholarly and creative output, disincentives, multidisciplinary and nontraditional scholarship, and the current scholarly landscape.

Open Access & Equity in Tenure & Promotion
A panel discussion on Open Access publication and resources within Tenure & Promotion, with particular focus on the topics of equity, prestige, quality of scholarship, and the effect of Open Access on these areas of T&P evaluation.

Physical attendance at the Anderson Academic Commons is recommended to allow for participation in local group discussion with colleagues from different disciplines, departments, and colleges across campus. Limited virtual seats are available by registration.

Colorado Open Scholars is a group coordinated across nine university libraries throughout Colorado which aims to enhance collaborations among Colorado universities by addressing the challenges & opportunities that Open Access, Open Educational Resources, and Open Data present in higher education.
