  1. 1. O P E N N E T WO R K E D L E A R N I N G 2 0 1 9 OPEN PEDAGOGY Presented by Dr Kay Oddone @kayoddone www.linkinglearning.com.au Photo by Monika Majkowska on Unsplash
  2. 2. R e s i s t i n g t h e d e f i n i t i o n OPEN PEDAGOGY Photo by Mr Cup / Fabien Barral on Unsplash “We might think about Open Pedagogy as an access-oriented commitment to learner-driven education AND as a process of designing architectures and using tools for learning that enable students to shape the public knowledge commons of which they are a part. Open pedagogy is a site of praxis, a place where theories about learning, teaching, technology, and social justice enter into a conversation with each other and inform the development of educational practices and structures." DeRosa & Rajiv, 2017 http://openpedagogy.org/open-pedagogy/
  3. 3. “While we are inspired by the opportunity to give voice to students in authentic ways and to engage them in shared and participatory knowledge creation, we also acknowledge the risk inherent in working in the open.” https://er.educause.edu/blogs/2018/11/the-values-of-open-pedagogy Image by Wolfgang Brauner from Pixabay
  4. 4. We might think about Open Pedagogy as an access-oriented commitment to learner- driven education AND as a process of designing architectures and using tools for learning that enable students to shape the public knowledge commons of which they are a part. Access-oriented Consider access and equity by choosing resources and pedagogies that reduce barriers – including economic, technical, social, cultural and political factors… • Open Educational Resources • Technology with accessibility features • Equitable times and places for learning • Respect for and understanding of cultural differences Image by congerdesign from Pixabay Read more at What is Open Pedagogy? https://www.yearofopen.org/april-open- perspective-what-is-open-pedagogy/ Scroll to the second entry by Maha Bali
  5. 5. A great list of ideas for developing learner driven pedagogy: http://openedgroup.org/oer-enabled-pedagogy We might think about Open Pedagogy as an access-oriented commitment to learner- driven education AND as a process of designing architectures and using tools for learning that enable students to shape the public knowledge commons of which they are a part. Image by congerdesign from Pixabay Learner-driven Consider how students can exercise greater agency and autonomy in their learning and learn through creation as much as (or more than) consumption: • Student negotiated/directed curriculum • Production centred learning • Student curated resources • Kill the ‘disposable assignment’ “assignments that add no value to the world – after a student spends three hours creating it, a teacher spends 30 minutes grading it, and then the student throws it away.” David Wiley https://opencontent.org/blog/archives/2975 A great list of ideas for developing learner driven pedagogy: http://openedgroup.org/oer-enabled- pedagogy
  6. 6. A great list of ideas for developing learner driven pedagogy: http://openedgroup.org/oer-enabled-pedagogy We might think about Open Pedagogy as an access-oriented commitment to learner- driven education AND as a process of designing architectures and using tools for learning that enable students to shape the public knowledge commons of which they are a part. Image by congerdesign from Pixabay Designing architectures Design your course to enable active participation, the development of community and connections with others: • Provide an online space for conversation, feedback and support • Create learning experiences that require student contribution for learning • Consider inviting and encouraging connections within and beyond the cohort; consider peers from other universities, experts, the general public… (a unit Twitter hashtag can be a great way to achieve this!) Learning can be openly shared and community within and beyond the cohort encouraged – here’s an example: https://opencl.linkinglearning.com.au/open- connected-learning-modules/orientation-module/
  7. 7. A great list of ideas for developing learner driven pedagogy: http://openedgroup.org/oer-enabled-pedagogy We might think about Open Pedagogy as an access-oriented commitment to learner- driven education AND as a process of designing architectures and using tools for learning that enable students to shape the public knowledge commons of which they are a part. Image by congerdesign from Pixabay Tools for learning Take advantage of the affordances of open, accessible and connected social technologies that mediate learning through knowledge construction and sharing; however do not view open as neutral: • Consider access to technology for students and allow them to use tools they feel comfortable with • Critique the tool prior to suggesting its use; data ownership, privacy, accessibility and reputation are all important.

Image by congerdesign from Pixabay Public knowledge commons “My graduate education encouraged me to think of students as antagonists, always trying to get one over on their instructors. I was urged to be on the lookout for plagiarism, to be vigilant for cheaters, to assume that the students wouldn’t do the reading, and to expect to be treated as a cog in a consumerist machine by students who would challenge their grades on a whim.” Catherine Denial, 2019. Open pedagogy recognises students as fellow learners, and education as richer than a simple transactional process where students are consumers and teachers are the producers. It values the humanity within education. It is described by Catherine Denial as a pedagogy of kindness: believing students, and believing in students.
