Becoming and Being Open Educators

Presentation for CESI Conference 2014 -- inviting Irish educators to consider their identities and their practices with respect to openness.

Published in: Education
  • More challenging work, indeed! I recently attended a NZ Summit for higher education focussed on MOOCs (my report: http://goo.gl/cKEF73). Some interesting presentations, but very passive audience. Few seem to have had much experience with MOOCs or open ed of any kind. Had an interesting chat on Twitter w/ Mark Brown (@mbrownz) following the summit. Much more happening in Ireland, it seems.

  • @undefined Many thanks, Mark... and thanks for starting the conversation on Twitter as well, I enjoyed that :) You are right about the nature and direction of connections that are happening. They are both lateral (with other educators in other institutions/countries) and direct -- with students, and many others. I am committed to this work, but also to working within HE to change the assumptions about open education. This is more challenging work than teaching and learning, alas, but we continue...

  • Terrific, Catherine! Several things here for me to follow up on that I wasn't aware of. These ideas are certainly on the wind and are being carried to all corners of the world — except, perhaps the corners and corridors of administrative power in HigherEd. Fruitful connections are more likely to be made directly between academics and our students than through top-level institutional alliances.

  26. 26. Learners need to practice and experiment with different ways of enacting their identities, and adopt subject positions through different social technologies and media. These opportunities can only be supported by academic staff who are themselves engaged in digital practices and questioning their own relationship with knowledge. - Keri Facer & Neil Selwyn (2010)
