Nearly 150 ago, frustrated by how little American institutions of higher learning prepared students for the world of their day, Charles Eliot called for a revolution in higher education. As president of Harvard, he brought about many reforms that exist in our educational system today. We face similar challenges in the present day, with many questioning the value of a university degree. Stephanie Wright, head of the Mozilla Science Lab, will discuss why she believes we may be due for another revolution and how the growing culture of “open” can form a basis for that revolution.
This presentation was given by Stephanie Wright at the University of Kansas on October 17, 2017. It was the keynote address for Open Access Week 2017. Stephanie Wright leads the Mozilla Science Lab, focusing on hosting events such as Working Open Workshops and Open Leadership Trainings, developing educational resources such as the Open Data Training Program, and building a community of leaders through Mozilla Fellowships and other activities. Prior to Mozilla, Stephanie worked for the University of Washington where she developed and led the Libraries Research Data Services program.
