Think Tank Stresses Importance of Information Sharing in Research and Teaching

The Committee for Economic Development, a nonprofit research and policy group, is calling for more openness in the sharing of information at higher-education institutions. In a new report, “Harnessing Openness to Improve Research, Teaching, and Learning in Higher Education,” the committee discusses how the digital age can allow for improved efficiency and greater collaboration, and also offers recommendations to both governments and colleges on how best to improve openness in academe. Suggestions include more dedication to open educational resources by colleges, and more financial support from governments for research on the effectiveness of digital educational materials.
