David Wiley (http://davidwiley.org) is well known for his leadership and advocacy of open content (http://opencontent.org/blog/). We're excited about his willingness to talk with us about the global Open Education Resources (OER) movement, how technology is impacting learning, and perhaps some historical perspective as to the Land-Grant mission and non-formal learning going forward. David Wiley's background with OER, Open Education, and the Land-Grant system is a perfect match for us as in cooperative extension. Join us for his remarks and the discussion!
Sponsored by eXtension with the ACE Information Technology and Leadership & Management SIGs. (http://collaborate.extension.org/wiki/ACE_Information_Technology_SIG and http://collaborate.extension.org/wiki/ACE_Leadership_%26_Management_SIG )

Jennifer Jahedkar, Texas AgriLife Extension, met David at a conference not long ago, and he shared a link with her to the article he co-authored entitled A Sustainable Model for OpenCourseWare Development, which may be good pre or post event reading. It's at http://hdl.lib.byu.edu/1877/2353.
