Abstract

Over the past three years, open advocates at Simon Fraser University have been successful in advancing the open agenda on campus. As an early career faculty member, Dr. Juan Pablo Alperin has already played a leading role in openness at SFU. Dr. Alperin will share his work in advancing scholarly communications at SFU which include passing Canada’s second institutional open access policy and changing the tenure and promotion requirements within his department to include openness. Brady Yano is a former student leader from Simon Fraser University. During his two year's spent on the board of the Simon Fraser Student Society, Brady was a vocal advocate for open educational resources (OER), and led a successful campaign called #textbookbrokeBC. His presentation will provide an overview of his journey as a young open advocate and will explore some of the challenges and opportunities of influencing institutional culture as an undergraduate student.
