While Open education resources (OER) get all the love, and deservingly so, developing any course in the open can also add a lot of value and possibilities. In this session Paul Hibbitts will share his first-hand experiences of developing both a university course (SFU) and continuing studies course (UBC) in the open. Topics will include the various aspects of undertaking an open development approach and some of Paul’s favorite tools and techniques used along the way.

  • 1. Developing a Course in the Open Paul D Hibbitts @hibbittsdesign #etug ETUG Spring Workshop 2014
  • 2. What does “open” mean to you?
  • 3. TheVarious Aspects of “Open” !  Result !  Price !  Culture !  Network !  Evaluation !  Process !  and others?
  • 4. Benefits/Risks of Developing a Course in the Open !  Honesty !  Accountability !  Collaboration !  Criticism !  Interest (e.g. enrollment) !  and others?
  • 5. MakingYour ProgressVisible !  Channels !  Structure !  Content
  • 6. Channels !  Twitter !  LinkedIn !  Google+ !  Facebook !  Instagram !  Pinterest
  • 7. What is your favorite method to map out your course structure?
  • 8. Structure !  Outlines !  Post-it notes !  Tree diagrams !  Mind maps
  • 9. Content !  Readings !  Discussion Topics !  Activities/Exercises !  Slides !  Course Website
  • 10. Time for Questions or Comments !  What we’ve covered so far – The various aspects of “open” – Benefits/risks of developing a course in the open – Making your progress visible •  Channels •  Structure •  Content !  Coming up – Case studies
  • 11. Example of open (re)development for a 13 week university course... Simon Fraser University (SFU) Computer Science Department, a mid-size university with three campuses in Western Canada. CMPT 363 User Interface Design (3rd year course)
  • 12. Top Lessons Learned !  Developing a course in the open was a game changer (for me) – Forced me to better articulate learning objectives – Made me re-think course development less from content (shame on me) and more from activities – Twitter better for in-progress items, LinkedIn for final versions – Reaching intended student audience can be a challenge – You naturally raise the bar when anyone can see your work!
  • 13. Time for More Questions or Comments !  What we’ve covered so far – CMPT 363, a case study •  Channels •  Structure •  Content !  Coming up – IY 103 case study (Continuing Studies course)
  • 14. Example of open development for a 3 week continuing studies course... University of British Columbia (UBC) Continuing Studies, part of the largest university in Western Canada. IY103 Designing Multi-device Learning Experiences
  • 15. Top Lessons Learned !  Developing a course in the open is applicable to continuing studies courses (i.e. traditionally closed courses) !  Solidified my change to activities first (i.e. outcomes first) !  From now on, open course development will be my (one and only?) default approach
