From Open Data to Open Pedagogy

  1. 1. From Open Data to Open Pedagogy: An Introduction to Integrating Open Practices into the Classroom Michelle Reed, Open Education Librarian Peace Ossom Williamson, Director of Research Data Services Open Education Week | UTA Libraries | 3.30.17
  2. 2. Openness is the only means of doing education. If there is no sharing, there is no education. Successful educators share most thoroughly with the most students. - David Wiley “Be a champion of a cause and don't give up.” - TJ Bliss “Research provides the foundation of modern society. Research leads to breakthroughs, and communicating the results of research is what allows us to turn breakthroughs into better lives—to provide new treatments for disease, to implement solutions for challenges like global warming, and to build entire industries around what were once just ideas. However, our current system for communicating research is crippled by a centuries old model that hasn’t been updated to take advantage of 21st century technology.” - Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC) “Isn’t it amazing that what serves social justice also serves effective pedagogy and is empirically supported?” - Rajiv Jhangiani

  8. 8. Open Textbooks, Open Pedagogy “I’ve spent some time talking about open pedagogy at several universities this Spring, and in each of those presentations and workshops, I have usually mentioned The Open Anthology of Earlier American Literature, an OER anthology that my students and I produced last year for an American literature survey course I taught. When I talk about the anthology, it’s usually to make a point about open pedagogy. I began the project with the simple desire to save my students about $85 US, which is how much they were (ostensibly) paying for the Heath Anthology of American Literature Volume A. Most of the actual texts in the Heath were a public domain texts, freely available and not under any copyright restrictions. As the Heath produced new editions (of literature from roughly 1400- 1800!), forcing students to buy new textbooks or be irritatingly out of sync with page numbers, and as students turned to rental markets that necessitated them giving their books back at the end of the semester, I began to look in earnest for an alternative.” - Robin DeRosa
  9. 9. How is Open Different? Current: Faculty provides core readings for the course. New: Students examine why core readings are core – what role did/do they play in the discipline. They develop a bibliography that explains that role, relating it to current work in the field. Subsequent classes update the bibliography, adding perspective to the original readings, adding readings they believe are now core and describing why for the next group of students
  10. 10. How is Open Different? Current: Students research a current issue related to a northwestern Native American tribe New: Students determine the gaps in the commonly available literature and interview members of a tribe in order to add native voice to the available perspectives. The bibliography is published in an open format. Students discuss what gets published, why, and whose voice is left out of “published” conversations.
