POSSE Pledge

From Teaching Open Source

Jump to: navigation, search

This pledge is under active revision.

[edit] Original version

I pledge to be a bridge between the world of academia and Teaching Open Source. This coming school year, I will commit to bringing The Open Source Way into my school's curriculum by getting all the students in at least one of my classes in the coming school year actively involved in contributing to an open source project for their coursework.

[edit] Proposed version

I pledge to be a bridge between the world of academia and Teaching Open Source.This coming school year, I will commit to bringing The Open Source Way to my school by:

  1. Giving a colloquium or presentation on Teaching Open Source to faculty and/or students at my school, or at a conference, during the academic year following my POSSE experience.
  2. At the conclusion of the school year, reporting to fellow Teaching Open Source community members on my adventures - blocker bugs and all - bringing The Open Source Way into my school's curriculum.
