  13. 13. What architectures do we need for learning? Who should build them?
  14. 14. Domain of One’s Own • Drag ’n Drop → Design • Digital consumer → Digital creator • Data mining → Data control • Audience of 1 → Public impact • Web as broadcast station → Web as open lab • Work attached to course → Work attached to student • ePortfolio → ePort
  15. 15. IDS taught me to be responsible for my learning and growth. You learn to expand your returns. We do not post our “homework” to a hidden, school controlled website. We share our work for all of the world to see. This idea of owning your own domain allows you to be confident in your work and take responsibility for what you are learning, how you make connections in the world, and how you share your knowledge. To me, this style of learning and sharing is a good idea for Interdisciplinary Studies and all other majors. Academic settings need to work on sharing each other’s work, and being engaged in the world outside of classroom walls. from I’m not graduating “on time” & that is OK.
  16. 16. Cost of Books OER Access to Knowledge Access to Knowledge Creation Open Pedagogy
  17. 17. Why have students answer questions when they can write them?
  18. 18. • Create and submit an assignment • Complete an assignment and share your work • Help someone else do the assignment by creating a tutorial
  19. 19. Digital redlining & the digital divide are real and insidious. Open is not the opposite of private. EdTech is selling something. Open is a process, not a panacea.
  20. 20. Open Pedagogy • Opens gates to learning • Centers access in design • Connects learners to their communities of practice • Thrives in learner-designed architectures • Leverages the open license • Enables learner contributions to the knowledge commons • Approaches tools and technologies critically, with a focus on privacy • Builds toward a publics- oriented vision for Higher Ed

  22. 22. be sustainably funded with public dollars
  23. 23. be supported by public infrastructures
  24. 24. be committed to broad access
  25. 25. transcend academic and institutional borders
