Making Community Spaces Safer: On Being “Open”

Over the course of this year (2020), members of the Educopia staff will be contributing blog posts to the “Making Community Spaces Safer” series. Each post will explore one of our organizational values and describe our efforts to live into that value, including our successes, our failures, and the hard-won lessons that occur in between. We will announce new posts on the Educopia website and on Twitter.

Few words or phrases are quite as ubiquitous (and so nearly universally positive) in the world of knowledge production as the modifier “open.” Most knowledge organizations strive to be open-minded, open to suggestions or criticism, open to collaboration, and open and accountable to our communities. In terms of our work, we promote open access to scholarship, use and recommend open source software, and advocate for the sharing of open data, all with open licenses. 

Educopia is no exception—you will have a hard time finding a page on our website or a report we’ve written that doesn’t include it.
