Event description

Description

The idea that easy access to government information, facilitated by information technology, can make government more open, accessible, and transparent has been an enduring theme for decades. Governments see the use of information access and dissemination programs as an essential strategy to increase openness and transparency in government, but at the same time, government's rush to make information available may actually frustrate open government goals of openness and transparency by providing information that is not usable or relevant to the various stakeholders interested in the data.

This course will:

  • Provide you with an understanding of key concepts related to Open Government and Open Government Data.

  • Introduce you to open government principles and discuss how these principles apply within your vision for your open government program.

  • Introduce you to the Center for Technology in Government’s Opening Government Data Planning Framework that focuses on the assessment, diagnostic, program design and cost estimating tools used to create an open government program.

  • Use case examples and allow you to use these tools within the classroom so that you are able to carry forth this work within your own agency/organizations.

  • Teach you how to analyze and describe the public value of your organization’s open government program.
