I believe that scholarship should have a wide readership, one that goes beyond the walls of the academy. My own dissertation is openly available, and I encourage other researchers to be more open with their work.
At Temple, I support our Textbook Affordability Project, which rewards faculty for using open or library-licensed content in their classes. Most recently, I helped write a guide for the Open Textbook Network on how to edit open textbooks.
