In the upcoming semester, I have a couple of opportunities to talk with faculty about open pedagogy (#OEP). Below are my beginning thoughts of trying to round up and articulate my thoughts about #OEP and how it moves beyond the discussion of #OER. Additionally, I have included a short list of openly available resources that have influenced my thinking. There are more, but sadly, some are not open access. There are many I have missed.
I welcome additional ideas and thoughts.
Moves beyond the question of why use Open Educational resources and to the question how does the use of Open Educational Resources shift the way you teach?
|Open pedagogical practices emphasize connection and community enabled by technology and openly licensed materials. (Aligned with Connected Learning)||Example activities
|Open pedagogical practices privilege access: access to content, access to learning||Example activities
|Open pedagogical practices are learner driven.||Example activities
|Open pedagogical practices are creation oriented.||Example activities
|Open pedagogical practices promote serendipitous learning and innovation.||Example activities
Most of these example assignments overlap principle categories
Two other principles I want to include are:
- Open pedagogical practices emphasize purpose over specific technology (Aligned with Digital Pedagogy)
- Open pedagogical practice promotes critical pedagogy.
