Open Fredonia

Open Fredonia is the go-to resource for learning about open scholarship and how it applies to teaching, learning, and research at Fredonia.

What is Open Scholarship?

Open Scholarship is an umbrella term used to describe the practice of applying principles of "openness" throughout the research and scholarly environment. This could come in the form of publishing in an open access journal, the creation and use of open educational resources (OER) in teaching practice, transparency in research methodology, or public availability and reusability of research data...

Numerous Fredonia faculty members have redesigned their courses to integrate Open Educational Resources (OER) over the past several years. Building off of this momentum and expanding our efforts more broadly, Fredonia can continue applying principles of openness across campus.

Please view our Open Education Toolkit to learn more.
