Our column on teaching, learning, and sharing openly online was just published in JAAL. I co-wrote the column with Verena Roberts, Randy LaBonte, and Lee Graham. In this case we share the challenges and opportunities associated with open, open educational resources, and open learning.
As a supplement to the column, we invited in a series of experts to spend some time discussing the broader impact of the details presented. The end result is a series of short video segments of the experts responding to a set of four questions about our column. You can review the video below. At the bottom of this post I share the questions and supplemental materials from the discussion.
Four Questions for David Reinking
David Reinking is a researcher known for his work with formative and design experiments and how literacy is affected by technology. He is the Eugene T. Moore Professor of Teacher Education at Clemson University.
- How do you frame open, and what are the implications for literacy and education?
- I see one of the challenges to the use of online open texts being a privileging of printed, traditional texts over online resources. Do you see these challenges, and how do you see the intersection?
- For instructors, academics, and educators in higher ed, how do you view the role of open (open access, open ed resources) impacting these spaces?
- I routinely blog, and share my work online. There is a debate in academia as to the role of scholars and researchers openly blogging, and publishing their work online. What is your position on this issue?
