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 Ronda Dorsey
Ronda Dorsey is an open education advocate, self-described “higher ed improver.” Ronda is multifaceted and any attempt that I’ll give to describe her will be incomplete. Follow her online, and get to know her. 🙂
- How do you define/describe “open”, and how is it linked to teaching and learning?
- Why Open? Why should teachers try to make this happen in their classrooms?
- What effect does this have on student engagement and learning?
- How can educators start designing in opportunities to share in their classroom?
