"OSPRI (Open Source Pedagogy, Research + Innovation) is an education innovation model inspired by open source principles and methodologies. Jointly housed in Duke University’s Social Science Research Institute and Innovation and Entrepreneurship Initiative with generous support from Red Hat, OSPRI develops interdisciplinary, project-based, student-centered curricular and co-curricular learning environments that empower students to be engaged agents of their learning and life pathways.
OSPRI is rooted in the open source values of open knowledge and access to information and promotes the use and generation of open educational resources. Focused on authentic, personalized learning, OSPRI’s curriculum design underscores the open source principles of collaboration and transparency, inclusion and diversity, and iterative and agile creation. In addition to developing an open source curricular pathway, OSPRI’s open learning ecosystem includes: collaborating with industry partners to create experiential, mentored learning; supporting student open source innovation project teams, hackathons, and challenges; presenting workshops on topics related to open pedagogy and open source culture and development processes; contributing to open access publications; and leading academic summits on making open the default position for teaching and learning, communicating, and creating within and beyond academia...."
