  27. 27. OPEN IN A PREtrumpPOST ERA • What kind of data does your university collect on students and how has it pledged to protect it? • Are your domains protected? Can students work anonymously? • How do you prepare students to handle trolling and online harassment? • What access issues (hardware, broadband, accessibility, redlining, literacy) challenge your good intentions? • How does your open pedagogy reinscribe unequal power dynamics? • How is academic labor made visible & compensated in the production of OER? Advocating for privacy is part of the open ethos; it is not contrary to it.
  28. 28. to OPEN (vb.) • Challenge barriers to access. Be honest and critical. • Center learners. Be radical and real. • Facilitate connection. Be a sticky node, not a gate. • Share your practice. Be generous and just.
