Session Table Name: BOLOGNA

Advocacy for Open Education often focuses on institutional practices, financial resources, or government policy: recognize authorship of Open Educational Resources (OERs) as a legitimate form of academic scholarship or fund a grant program to encourage adoption of OERs, require government publications to be openly licensed. In most cases, the ideas behind these efforts focus on students: expanding access for students by removing cost barriers or improving student learning by enacting open pedagogy. Nevertheless, advocacy for Open Education rarely involves students themselves. Our project in aims to change that. We are building a student network for OER advocacy across California higher education. During this session, we will describe how and why we started, the challenges and successes we encountered, and engage the audience in identifying how they can start a student network for OER advocacy.
