Talk given at OISE Educational Commons with Jim Slotta and Stian Haklev Thursday March 12, 2009.

Update: I linked an MP3 file to this slideshare, but I have not synchronized the slides, so you will have to flip yourself, or try the link below.

(The whole lecture was filmed, and the video with slides is available here:

The term "Open Educational Resources" (OER) was coined at a 2002 UNESCO conference, and refers to the rapidly growing phenomenon of sharing educational resources freely online. Projects have and being developed in several American institutions, and in almost 30 countries. These "open resources" can be accessed by the wide educational community of teachers and students in all contexts, which has the potential to radically expand access to education, but raises many questions. How can pedagogical models and online communities support this kind of learning? Are there ways of providing accreditation for new forms of informal learning?

Join us as we give an overview of the field of open education, and participate in the discussion about this new dimension that will impact Canadian higher education in coming years. We will discuss new opportunities for U of T courses, including the challenge of locating high quality, relevant materials for courses (both online and face-to-face) and of integrating these materials in order to enhance student learning. We will discuss the implications of open education for university educators and researchers, as well as other communities of learners such as those in developing nations or those who wish to organize their own program of study.
