Description

Teaching in the Open is about building connections and community. It is about contextualizing learning in a larger world outside of the classroom, and making education more relevant, inclusive, equitable and accessible. Open helps us address the question: How can my role as a teacher or professional in higher education have a greater impact in influencing our larger culture? Open Pedagogy deeply prioritizes the empowerment of learners to take greater ownership of how and what they learn, and encourages them to “not just be consumers of, but contributors to the knowledge commons.” While it involves the use of the web, OER, and some easy-to-learn technological tools, it is not about the technology itself. Instead, practitioners of open pedagogy leverage the open license, and utilize the web for uncontrolled discovery, creativity and analysis, and as a venue for dialogue with the wider public.
