Working toward Yes: Open Access as Innovation in
Higher Education Culture 

Virtual | November 7-9, 2023

About This Years Conference

TLC 2023 poses the question, “Does the culture of higher education need a new paradigm?” Many practices that are innate to higher-education culture - such as strict admissions requirements or paywalls for scholarly journals - are associated with the word “no” in that they deny many people access to learning opportunities. But in a time where access to post-secondary education is necessary for achieving socioeconomic viability, working toward "yes" (i.e., open access) in higher-education culture is imperative. TLC 2023 will explore conceptions of open access as a vehicle for innovations that can more effectively support the inclusion and success of contemporary post-secondary students.

TLC 2023 looks forward to its participants’ co-creating new open-access educational approaches that will ensure the inclusion, persistence, and success of a diverse, contemporary post-secondary student body.
