How Digital Technologies & Open Educational Resources are Disrupting Higher Education
Tuesday, April 24 – 2 p.m. – 3 p.m.
Presenter: 
Dr. Cable Green, Director of Global Learning, Creative Commons

The Internet, increasingly affordable computing, open licensing, open access journals and open educational resources provide the foundation for a world in which a quality education can be a basic human right. Yet before we break the “iron triangle” of access, cost and quality with new models, we need to educate policy makers about the obviousness of open policy and understand the powerful intersection of digital works, licensing and access.
