Politics of Open Resources: Allosso Examines the Impact of Free Educational Materials

Dan Allosso, assistant professor of history at Bemidji State University, will continue the 2019 Honors Council Lecture Series with his research on “The Politics of Open Educational Resources” on Nov. 19.

Allosso has been studying how to use more open educational resources on campuses and the politics behind the decisions. The lecture will begin at 6 p.m. in Bridgeman Hall, Room 100 and is free and open to the public.

The Honors Council Lecture Series is hosted by the Bemidji State University Honors Council, the advisory group to BSU’s honors program. It is composed of 12 faculty members representing each of the university’s colleges. Student representatives are also elected to the council by their cohorts for one-year terms. The series provides BSU faculty with a forum to share their expertise and the results of their research with the Bemidji community. All Honors Council lectures are open free to the public.
