Introduction to Open Pedagogy

January 20, 10:30-11:30am

Open Pedagogy is a form of experiential learning in which students demonstrate understanding through the act of creation. The products of open pedagogy are student created and frequently licensed as Open Educational Resources (OER). Open pedagogy leverages the “open” nature of OER to facilitate learning, and emphasizes community and collaboration, sharing resources, ideas and power. In this workshop, we’ll see examples of open pedagogy assignments at the UW, discuss benefits and challenges, and engage in an interactive exercise to transform traditional classroom assignments into renewable ones.
