Open Sourcing Food Safety Protocols, Craig Eley & Rachel Boothby from the Center for the Humanities
For every food product that comes to the aisles of your local grocery store, the FDA and USDA require detailed Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) plans from food producers that detail how contaminants will be kept at safe levels. Historically, these plans have been proprietary and very expensive, relying on the knowledge of a handful of paid consulting firms. During the 2016-2017 academic year, the Center for the Humanities and the Underground Food Collective have partnered on a project to make these protocols more widely available through a website that shares plans with a CC0 license. This project has been led by Public Fellow Rachel Boothby, a PhD candidate in the Geography Department who studies the environmental history of the US food system. In this informal presentation, Rachel and Craig Eley (Assistant Director of Humanities Networks at the Center for the Humanities) will highlight this project and the potential for open data to influence the public humanities more broadly.
No February 2017 Meeting
Topic: OER, especially Open Textbooks
Presentation: Steel Wagstaff and Amanda Larson on current activity around open textbooks on campus.
Our campus has developed its very first strategic framework for OER, which we hope will result in improved learning outcomes, greater flexibility for instructors and students, and more affordable instructional materials for students. In addition to developing a strategic framework, staff at L&S Learning Support Services here on campus have also worked closely with Unizin to develop and host Pressbooks a WordPress-based authoring platform designed to help faculty and staff easily develop and publish openly licensed textbooks and other educational material.
Presentation by Stephanie Seymour and Eddie Ruiz
Title: The Journal of Undergraduate Science and Technology: Communicating Science in the Madison Community
Description: The Journal of Undergraduate Science and Technology (JUST) is UW-Madison’s first undergraduate, peer-reviewed journal founded in Fall 2015. JUST was created in order to address a need for increased scientific communication on campus with the goals of allowing undergraduates to gain experience in scientific writing and publication while also providing a medium to communicate their science to the campus and Madison community at large.
