PDA Open Pedagogy in OER Series, Workshop 1: Introducing Open Pedagogy: From Open Resources to Equitable, Student-Centered Practices

Tuesday, March 8, 2022 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

Please join us for a 2-part series presented by Will Cross on Open Pedagogy on March 8 and 15. Open Pedagogy as defined by BCcampus is the use of open educational resources (OER) to support learning, or the open sharing of teaching practices with a goal of improving education and training at the institutional, professional, and individual level. When you use open pedagogy in your classroom, you are inviting your students to be part of the teaching process, participating in the co-creation of knowledge.

Register for Workshop 1, March 8, 2:00 p.m. Central Time - Introducing Open Pedagogy: From Open Resources to Equitable, Student-Centered Practices

In this workshop Will Cross will introduce open pedagogy, an access-oriented commitment to learner driven education. Just as open educational resources can remove financial barriers for students, open pedagogy empowers faculty and students to build courses that reflect and connect out to the world in which they live. This workshop will introduce the core values of open pedagogy and walk you through successful models for putting open pedagogy into practice. You will leave with a deeper foundation in open pedagogy and be prepared to join us in our follow-up workshop on implementing open pedagogy.

Register for Workshop 2, March 15, 2:00 p.m. Central Time - Implementing Open Pedagogy: Outreach and Advocacy for Developing Faculty Partnerships

In this workshop we will explore strategies for making open pedagogy work at your institution. Building on the Introducing Open Pedagogy workshop, we will explore strategies for developing a team to support open pedagogy and develop a tailored action plan for connecting with faculty instructors. Because this session is focused on outreach and team building, attendees are encouraged to invite colleagues from across campus including instructional designers, learning technology experts and, of course, faculty instructors. You and your team will leave ready to implement open pedagogy strategies at your institution.
