This panel discussion begins with brief presentations of several “core open practices”—Open Access, Open Education/Open Educational Resources, and Open Data—by experts from the University Libraries at Virginia Tech. We will then transition into a discussion of the role of open practices for instructors and researchers. Representing diverse disciplines, faculty of various levels will discuss the value and impact of “open”: their rationale for adopting open philosophies, the competing priorities of different open practices, the barriers and opportunities to sharing data and research openly, and perceptions of openness among various stakeholders.
