Introduction to Open Pedagogy

February 28, 2024 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm BST

Open pedagogy is an approach to education draws on the openness of open educational resources (OER) to engage students in the creation of knowledge and learning, rather than simply the consumption of it. It emphasizes community, cooperation, and the sharing of resources, ideas and power.  This presentation will introduce open pedagogy through definition and some examples, outline the role of OER, and identify some core principles of practice. This will involve a discussion of student agency and community building. Open pedagogy in practice will be considered, including open approaches to renewable and responsive assignments and the development student-created OER. Participants will become aware of issues and challenges around open pedagogy, including those involving content rights, participation and privacy issues.
