Advocacy

Open Social Work Education recognizes the importance of policies and practices that support teaching “in the open.”  Current initiatives include incorporating OER permissions into existing resource sharing that faculty engage in at social work education conferences and via social media.  Future initiatives will focus on assisting faculty and student advocates who wish to raise awareness of OER, create grant programs incentivizing the creation of OER, and incorporating OER authorship into tenure and promotion as well as university copyright policies.
