Community of Practice

The Open Pedagogy Community of Practice gathers each term as a learning community to explore open pedagogy and teaching with OER (open educational resources). We will co-create programming to navigate the landscape of open practice by sharing teaching strategies, resources, and experiences.

“Open Pedagogy,” as we will engage with it, is a site of praxis, a place where theories about learning, teaching, technology, and social justice enter into a conversation with each other and inform the development of open pedagogies and practices to reduce the barriers of access to education. This is not limited to OER.

For examples, check out the Open Pedagogy Notebook, or, Open Pedagogy Approaches.

Who can join? Anyone. Participation is open to any individual at any stage of their open education journey. This may include instructors, teaching assistants, instructional designers, educational developers, librarians, administrators, etc.
