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.

- How do you define “open” and how does this affect teaching and learning in the classroom?
- As an educator that is open, what does this look like in your classroom, for your students. What does an average day look like?
- As an educator in the open…what does an average day look like online for you in your PLNs? What do you do outside of school? What are your interactions like?
- What challenges and opportunities do you have from these experiences?
