The Ancient World Online (AWOL) blog is looking for academics who have used open data in their teaching to share their experiences. By conducting a mini-survey to understand which portals, tools, or repositories academics use to retrieve open datasets, they can better understand how this information is being used in teaching and learning in higher education. Have you taken the AWOL User Survey?

The results of this survey will be published and shared on their blog when complete. This interesting opportunity was brought to us by The Ancient World Online in their post, “Survey: Use of Open Data in Higher Education.

AWOL is a project of Charles E. Jones, Tombros Librarian for Classics and Humanities at the Pattee Library, Penn State University. The primary focus of the project is notice and comment on open access material relating to the ancient world, but also includes other kinds of networked information as it comes available.
