Event Description

Speakers: Christina Hendricks and David Vogt

Description:

Open education can be understood as a collection of practices that utilize online technology to freely share knowledge and to increase access to learning. The creative act of designing an open course or project can also lead to new pedagogical approaches. This session will feature two UBC faculty members who are creating and participating in innovative open projects and courses, including:

  • M101 – a localized, open online course on mobile education that is designed as knowledge asset and professional network
  • Why Open? – a facilitated and collaborative course that explores the different meanings of open in various industries as well as the benefits and issues with open
  • #ooe13 – an open professional development course on educational technologies
  • DS106 – an open, online course on digital storytelling that is hosted by the University of Mary Washington and that is currently being offered as a “headless” version this term with volunteers in charge of facilitating particular weeks during the course
  • ETEC522, PHIL102, Arts One & More – on campus courses which are incorporating student blogs, wikis, backchannels and more

In addition to hearing their stories, the session will also explore the motivations, experiences, and challenges in embracing open. We will discuss the impact openness had on their pedagogy and use of technology as well as explore how to determine if these efforts are meeting the instructors goals and improving the student experience.
